Great Waldingfield Primary School pupils have received certificates for having the essential know-how to provide vital help in potentially life-threatening situations.

A group of 10 eight and nine year olds took part in the British Heart Foundation’s HeartStart UK course, which ran over three weeks with lessons, videos and hands-on practice from trainer Ray Cook in what to do if someone has a heart attack or other health problem.

“They learned the recovery position, how to phone for an ambulance, chest compressions and other skills,” said Mr Cook. Any groups or schools interested in the scheme should contact Mr Cook on 07932 639265.
