While unfortunately the Free First Aid Skills in Schools Program is only funded for years K to 6 in the ACT at the moment, there are some resources available for teachers and community group leaders to start introducing first aid in the classroom at other year levels. These can also be used to reinforce first aid skills after a First Aid Skills in Schools session.
St John is keen to support teachers as much as possible at all school levels as well as community group leaders including Scouts and Guides.
There are some handy fact sheets on our website that might be useful if you wish to do some first aid with your students. They are not as good as having a trainer there but any exposure to first aid is always a good thing!
Please register your use of them as per the instructions in the link below.

St John also offers discounted accredited and non-accredited training to school groups. Please see Other Courses Suitable for School Students for details.
