Schools First AID
Primary School First Aid Workshop Cork & Munster

Our Primary School First Aid Workshops are fun-filled, interactive and are sure to give students a great introduction to first aid. We aim to give young people the confidence and knowledge to respond effectively in an emergency, be it minor or major incident. All classes can be catered for from Junior infants up to 6th class if desired.

Unfortunately, First Aid training for primary students is not compulsory and it is at a schools discretion to provide any such training to students. Exposure to first aid at a young age has the potential to save a life or insure someone receives the help they need at the scene of an accident, even if it is as simple as having the ability to raise the alarm effectively.

Where will workshops take place?

Workshops will take place in school and can be adapted to suit your school's needs. Our workshops generally take one hour but can be shortened or lengthened to suit your schools' schedule. Multiple classes can be accommodated over the course of a school day.

What will they learn?

  • How to activate the emergencies services
  • Burns treatment
  • Responding to bleeding
  • Basic intro to CPR
  • What is a seizure & what can I do
  • Recovery position

Teachers First Aid Workshop
Cork & Munster
"Our 4th, 5th and 6th Classes thoroughly enjoyed their First Aid Workshops presented by Dave. The pupils found the workshops very interesting and engaging as there was a lovely mixture of theory, demonstration and hands-on practice for all participants. The pupils learned a range of new skills that they can use in the future if needed. I would highly recommend Dave and Know Your First Aid for your school." (Mr Colm Lyons, Crosshaven BNS)
