Girls throughout the Senior School spent time this morning learning crucial life-saving techniques for cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR).
The training was conducted by the Yorkshire Ambulance Service as part of the international campaign, Restart A Heart Day #RestartAHeart. The Mount girls joined tens of thousands of students throughout Europe and Australia who underwent similar training on this day.
The Mount’s Nurse Cindy, who coordinated the day, reminded girls that the School also has an onsite defibrillator which can be deployed in case of a CPR emergency.
The girls enjoyed their training. While they found it useful, many of the girls agree that they hope they will never need to use it.
Junior School will have a separate training at a later date.
