On Friday 12th October, four S6 pupils and Mr Cooper had the opportunity to participate in being a Firefigher for a day at the National Training Centre at Cambuslang. Pupils and staff participated in a variety of activities which included a tour of the facilities; removing a person from a vehicle; CPR; hose running; being in a confined space; putting water to fire and also use the breathing apparatus. One of the pupils who participated, Jonathan, said that it was “a great experience and a fantastic insight into the work firefighters have to do daily”. We would like to thank the Fire Service for this great opportunity for pupils and also to Mrs Nimmo, a local resident, who won this experience at an auction in aid of Parkinsons and donated it to the school. Thank you.
