Ready for action
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.’’
