Zakho Students Learn About First Aid
Grade 2 students at Zakho International School, a SABIS® PPP school in Kurdistan, attended a first aid presentation on November 5, 2016.
The school nurse and a guest doctor gave the presentation to the students to help them better understand first aid and how to act in case of an emergency. Students learned about what to do if someone got dizzy, broke a bone, fell, and other such emergencies. The doctor brought with him many illustrations and diagrams to show the students about first-aid procedures, and then allowed the students to practice in partners. Finally, the presenters explained what a first aid kit is, what should be inside it, and where the students can find them at school.
This was an excellent activity organized or the Grade 2 students because it gave them knowledge on emergencies and the confidence to know how to handle any emergency situation. “What a great activity to show students what to do when no adult or professional is around to conduct first aid,” said a teacher.
