The St John First Aid in Schools Program is a free program that teaches primary school children lifesaving skills to give them the confidence to act in an emergency.
Through fun and informative activities, we give students the life skill of First Aid. Children are encouraged to act with confidence & help in the case of an emergency. Engaging practical activities and easy-to-follow step-by-step plans are used to entertain and help the children retain these vital skills.
The knowledge and skills gained in our First Aid in Schools Program will develop First Aid awareness in school children and contribute to building a more resilient community.
This program is offered at no cost to schools and includes training suitable for primary schools, high schools, and community groups.
Our trainers can visit all schools across Tasmania for a single session or a whole day.
