Teaching crucial skills at an early stage of life.
Children are frequently the first at the scene of an incident, and are often required to act when no adult is available to assist.
With research showing that children from six to seven years old are able to perform first aid, learn CPR, and place an emergency call, it seems logical that our children are trained in basic first aid.
First Aid in Schools is offered in Brisbane, Sunshine Coast, Toowoomba and the Gold Coast.
Free first aid in schools
Our mission is to build generational resilience by offering every primary school student the opportunity to be taught the basics of first aid and resuscitation – at no cost.
The curriculum has been divided into age-appropriate modules:
- Module 1: Prep – Grade 2 (5-8 years): Looking for danger, sending for help, personal safety, knowing your location and recognising paramedics
- Module 2: Grade 3 & 4 (8-10 years): learning the DRSAB steps of the Action Plan and the Recovery Position practical for unconscious and breathing people
- Module 3: Grade 5 & 6 (10 – 12 years): learning the DRSABC steps of the Action Plan, the Recovery Position and CPR practicals
We aspire to reach every child in Queensland
The First Aid in Schools program is delivered by dedicated, highly-trained volunteer educators.
The feedback we’ve received from the children and schools so far is very positive, and validation that we are meeting a very worthwhile community need.
Sponsorships, donation, volunteering and fundraising are all key to this program’s success. Your contribution helps in the following ways:
- $10 will train one child
- $300 will sponsor a class
- $5000 will support a primary school of 500 students
Every donation makes a difference, regardless of size.
