The inaugural Linking with Ambulance Victoria program was a huge hit. Tate, Year 10, was one of the lucky students who was offered a place in the week long program. Students were advised about a range of job roles as well as paramedics, and also learnt about leadership, teamwork, appropriate risk taking, communication, and health promotion.
On the 27/4/ 15 myself and 13 other students from completely different schools came together to see what it was like at a branch. Fourteen people with not much in common became great friends learning skills, especially how to use an Automated External Defibrillator correctly. At the end we taught Grade 5&6 from Clairvaux PS the 4 Steps for Life Plus Program we had learnt. I would recommend this program to everyone.
Thank you Kate, Scott, Jake, Marie and the paramedics who taught us, and finally everyone else I’m glad I met.
