First Aid

Home » Cultural » First Aid

Our First Aid girls completed an advanced first aid course which included Anatomy, Basic Pharmacology, Medical and Trauma modules for the first time in 2013. This course serves as a basic platform for learners going into any medical field and to pass the course, they were required to achieve an overall aggregate of 70% for their theory and a 100% for all practicals. The course was done through Medipracs. Medipracs support learners who are interested in medicine and is willing to assist them where they can for their field of interest. Our learners did very well, with aggregates well over 80% and 90%.

First Aid also forms one of the components of the Grade 9 wellness academy and gives the girls a useful life skill.

The First Aiders not only volunteer their time at school; they are also active within the community, doing duties at Jeppe Boys, local primary schools and the annual spring fare held at Rhodes Park.

The following girls were recognised during 2015 for their contribution to First Aid:
