On Tuesday 22nd January, myself and about a class full of children were offered a space to complete the Heartstart emergency life support programme. This taught us many new skills and most importantly, how to save lives.

A team from the West Midlands Fire Service came to Holyhead School and gave us a presentation about the main life saving skills that are vital such as CPR, controlling bleeding, to check if someone's breathing right, choking and overall performing all these skills. This for sure showed us how to meet the challenges of everyday life and how to cope under pressure.

Overall this experience is definitely necessary because it helps to cope with the increasing pace and change of modern life, this gives us the skills such as the ability to deal with stress and frustration.

In my opinion this experience was very challenging yet fun! I have learnt about vital skills that I never imagined myself doing!
