First Aid Course in our School

A basic first aid course was held in our school over the past two Wednesday evenings. Fifth and sixth class students learned basic first aid; including how to put someone into the recovery position, CPR first respondents and how to use a defibrillator.

The course facilitator was Nurse Ann Gardener and we would like to thank Ann for conducting the course in our school to the pupils, teachers and members of the community.

Also, practiced was how to fit a triangular bandage and other common bandage strappings. 

It was of great benefit to all. Thank you to all those involved.

Mother's Day Card

Check out our 'Love you to Pieces' Mother's Day cards.

In the senior room we made Tea-rrific Mother's Day Cards with messages based on pins like 'I love you a latte' and 'I cannot espresso how much I love you' 😉

 Happy Mother's Day to all our Mammy's and Nanny's here in Kilrickle National School and throughout the land. We hope you have a wonderful day.
