d'Auvergne are first for First Aid
Congratulations to d’Auvergne School on winning this year’s Jersey Electricity-sponsored St John Ambulance Junior Schools First Aid Competition. The winners were presented with their trophies and certificates at this morning’s Achievers' Assembly by JE Health, Safety and Environment Engineer Chris Bester accompanied by St John Nurse and competition organiser Frances Le Cornu.
Five teams of four faced several emergency scenarios during the competition held at the St John Ambulance HQ on Midvale Road yesterday and their competence in dealing with each incident against the clock was judged by St John Ambulance nurses. Former d’Auvergne Teaching Assistant Bernie Gavey, who leads the First Aid course at the school during lunchtimes, said the Year Six winning team had been learning First Aid for two years. Plat Douet were second and Beaulieu third.
