HELP A MATE: Cargill Open Plan School car­ried out The Red Cross Peo­ple Savers course where students Joe Waenga and Ratu Ratu were trained how to act in an emer­gency sit­u­a­tion, whether in the class­room, play­ground, on a school trip or at home.

Prin­ci­pal Rhonda Rayner said students learnt how to act to var­i­ous emer­gency sit­u­a­tions in­clud­ing burns, chok­ing, poi­son­ing and breaks.

‘‘This was a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity for our students to learn some valu­able life skills. You never know when an ac­ci­dent or emer­gency may oc­cur and you may be the first on the scene and need to take ac­tion.’’
