Prestigious Award for First Aiders

Prestigious Award for CCHS First AidersLast weekend, at a prestigious awards ceremony in London, our first aid team’s quick actions in saving a student’s life, were acknowledged. Earlier this year a Year 9 pupil went into cardiac arrest after becoming unwell during a drama lesson. Trained first aiders Rachel Blastock and Gary Winterford administered CPR (Cardio-Pulmonary Resuscitation) and utilised one of the schools AED Defibrillators to save John’s life. Other school first aiders, Amanda Dullage and Nicola Nundy, assisted by contacting the emergency services and helping coordinate the arrival of the paramedics and air ambulance. The team’s heroic actions were honoured at the SADS-UK (Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome) National Lifesaver Awards night, recognising people within the community who have used CPR and a defibrillator to save someone’s life.

The CCHS team were presented with their award by Dr Hilary Jones, the health editor on Good Morning Britain, pictured above with our First Aid team and SADS-UK founder, Anne Jolly. Since the incident all of Clacton County High School’s teaching and non-teaching staff have now completed a CPR and defibrillator introduction course, which was run in-house, and a third defibrillator has been purchased to ensure one is always close to hand across the school site.

The evening attracted a lot of interest to, what is set to become, Clacton County High School’s sixth form college.
