Students Refresh Lifesaving Skills

PROUD - OpportunityLast week, twenty-five of our Year 10 students were invited to take part in the annual ‘Restart a Heart’ campaign at Colchester Hospital. They spent an hour updating their knowledge on how to perform CPR – Chest Compressions and Rescue Breaths, as part of a national drive to teach everyone these lifesaving skills.

Over the past couple of years we have taught CPR to students across the year groups as part of our REAL (Religious, Ethical & Life-Long Learning) Days. Following an incident in school earlier this year, we feel it is now even more important to ensure that all our students know how to perform CPR and use an AED – Automated External Defibrillator. Each student left with a certificate from the British Heart Foundation to acknowledge their participation in their ‘Call – Push – Rescue’ campaign.

In the UK every year, about 30,000 people go into cardiac arrests outside of hospital. The chances of surviving a cardiac arrest decreases by 10 percent each minute if CPR is not started, and survival rates are currently less than 1 in 10 people in this country. In Norway, where CPR is taught to every student in school the survival rate is 1 in 4.

PROUD - OpportunitySTEM Astronomy

This week, students across the school have been learning about one of nature’s biggest firework displays, with the Orionid meteor shower, which is currently lighting up the night sky with numerous shooting stars visible each night. The Orionid shower is one of the best-known and most reliable meteor showers in the annual calendar, visible from across the globe. It is extra special as the meteors are actually pieces of Comet 1P/Halley, famously known as Halley's Comet. The famous comet swings by the earth only once every 75 - 76 years but this annual shower provides some compensation for those who may miss that once in a lifetime event. The 2019 Orionid meteor shower peaked on Monday night with around 20 meteors zooming through the skies each hour and lasts until the 7th November as the number of meteors entering the atmosphere per hour decreases.
