Schools urged to sign up to lifesaving lesson

Have your say

Children should be taught lifesaving skills at school, according to new research by first aid charity St John Ambulance.

The survey reveals that 93 per cent of north east teachers would like to equip their students with first aid skills but only 19 per cent of schools do so.

St John Ambulance says too many lives are lost each year through lack of first aiders and is urging schools to take part in its first Big First Aid Lesson – a 60-minute online class for seven to 16-year-olds streamed live into classrooms.
