In preparation for their Bronze DofE expeditions, on 7th February the whole of the UIV Form spent a day learning about outdoor first aid from the fantastic Wiltshire Outdoor Learning Team.

In the morning the girls were taught practical first aid skills culminating in short presentations to their group, demonstrating what they had learnt. In the afternoon the girls moved outside and tackled a series of practical scenarios which simulated accidents and emergencies.  After each practical task the girls were debriefed and, as the afternoon wore on, the groups became better at dealing with the casualties. Now the girls have completed First Aid Training they will start preparing for the September Daywalk in LV Form and the DofE Expedition in Spring 2018.
