St. John`s first aid course

Today at school, two women from St. John's at Christchurch came and taught us about first aid. The first thing we did was D
                             R
                               S
                                 A
                                   B
                                     C.
It stands for Dangers, Response, Send 4 help, Airway, Breathing and CPR. It means that when you see an unconscious or hurt person, you have to first get calm and look for dangers, like a teetering light or broken glass. Then you have to be a good distance away, and call out to them to see if they are awake. The reason for going a good distance away is that they might slap you in the face if you stand too close, because it is natural for people to do that. Then go really close and shout out their name again, but also tap on their collarbone. It is likely that they will wake up. If they don't, call out very loudly for help and get someone to call an ambulance. Be careful to tell them to come back after, so that you know the ambulance actually IS coming, because they could trip or something on the way there. Then you have to tip the patient's head back, because the tongue could block their air pipe. And just in case they aren't breathing, you have to look, listen and feel to know if they are breathing. It means that you have to put your ears close to the patient's mouth to hear if he/she is breathing, put your hand on his/her chest, and see if the hand rises and falls. Do this for 10 secs. If your patient is not breathing, you have to do CPR. If not you have to put the patient on his side. Here are the steps:

  1. Take the hand closest to you and make it go over his head.
  2. Grab the other arm and put it over the chest to opposite shoulder.
  3. Hold the leg farthest away from you up, and keep it there.
  4. Pull your patient towards you.
  5. Take his top arm and put it in a way to stop him from rolling onto his stomach.
  6. Take his top leg and lay it on the ground in an L-shaped position.
  7. Use his spare arm to make him/her hold his/her head up, and you're done!

We also learnt what to do when have a Nosebleed:
  1. Pinch the end of your nose and face the ground for 10 mins. This will form a clot.
  2.  If it is still bleeding, do step 1 again.
  3. If it is STILL bleeding, find an adult and tell him/ her.
I had a really great experience, and I hope we could do it again.

Random Friday Writing

The orange sun was a slowly slithering snake, going under the horizon while the snow shone as bright as a spotlight. A boy skipped across the glittering ground and went under the tree. He was about as tall as the leave-less trees above him. He wished that the sun could stay up forever, so he could stay out as much as he liked. But Peter knew that his Dad would ground him if he did. He watched the lone leaf skittering across the ground away from its family. He wished he as free as the leaf.

Main stars- Join a club, sport, attend church or cubs

(For this main star, I joined a swimming class and went there every Monday.)

Week one: Ben is still my teacher like last term, and I moved up to level eight. But that day, I accidently went to level nine's class. Oops!

Week two: I practiced L-shapes.

Week three: I practiced backstroke.

Week four: I practiced diving.

Week five: There is school swimming everyday right before swimming, and I get really exhausted after swimming class!

Week six: Same as week five.

Week seven: It is the queen's birthday today, so there is no swimming.

Week eight: Today after we did some breaststroke practice, we had a noodle race! If you don't know what that is, you sit on a floaty noodle like a horse and the rules are you can't touch anything but water. The winner is the first one to get to the middle of the lane.

Week nine: Breaststroke.

Week ten: Today I had production practice, so I couldn't go to swimming class.

Main stars- random act of kindness with note



We had to many vegetables, so we took these to the Salvation Army for someone who couldn't afford groceries (When I took the photo, the note wasn't made yet, and before I remembered I had to take a photo with the note, we already gave it away).
