Huge thanks to Tanya Ellis; paramedic and retained fire-fighter, for coming to visit us as part of our HWB topic. She was full of brilliant information about the role of the emergency services and the things we can do to help.
The pupils worked on putting one another in the recovery position, the dos and don’ts of making a 999 call, how the pager system works and the basics of CPR.
It was really interesting to get a closer look at some of the careers available in our community too.
The P7 pupils each typed and emailed their reports to me as an attachment, so I could upload them to GLOW. They show the insight the pupils got!
On the 23RD of September 2019 P4-7 got a input on First Aid from Tanya Ellis. Tanya is a retained Fire Fighter and a full time Paramedic. Tanya came to the school to give the input because P4-7 is learning about First Aid in HWB. Tanya got in to this job because she always wanted to be a fire fighter; she became a paramedic six years ago and decided to do full time paramedic and part time fire fighter. Tanya told us is someone has an allergy to something they will have an Epi-Pen; they stab the Epi-Pen in to the back of their thigh or their butt because they are big muscles. We also learned if someone is conscious the person who is with them would put them into the recovery positon. If they were un-conscious the person was with them would have to phone 999 and give them CPR. Tanya became a fire fighter when she was twenty.
On 23rd September, Tanya Ellis came to give an input the Leswalt class of p4-7. Tanya Ellis is a part time firefighter and part time paramedic. She came to demonstrate first aid stuff. She showed us the recovery position, how to do CPR, what to do if someone has an asthma attack and about epi pens.
On the 23rd of September p4-7 Tanya Ellis a paramedic and a retained fire fighter came to Leswalt to tell us a bit about her job. She had always wanted to be a fire fighter and just became a paramedic six years ago. She told us how to put people in the recover position and where to put a epi-pen. You also need to stay came when you are going to call 999.And when if you are doing CPR you need to keep doing it till the ambulance comes to your help. I think this is important because if someone you know is hurt than you know what to do and how to help them.
And maybe you could save someone’s life one day.
On the 23rd of September p4 to 7 got a visit from Tanya Ellis, who is a retained fire fighter and a paramedic.

She became a fire fighter when she was twenty and became a paramedic six years ago . She taught us a lot and we even had to put someone else in the recovery position . I think it was really good that she came to talk to us because it was really important for kids to know this because one day you might have to save someone’s life.
