Never too young to save livesBy Becky Barnes

Schools across Berkshire are being urged to take up first aid training from St John Ambulance.
The charity is offering assemblies and structured courses so young people are equipped with the skills to save a life.
Natasha Bright-Thomas, St John Ambulance schools liaison officer said: “No school pupil is too young to learn basic first aid.
“First aid training helps young people understand the value of life and the importance of caring for others.
“It also builds self-esteem and develops valuable life skills for the future.”
Courses can be tailored to suit different ages from introductory assemblies to teddy bear first aid sessions for under-fives.
First aid training can be incorporated into other subjects already being taught in schools, including PSHE, Citizenship, PE and the Duke of Edinburgh award scheme.
Any schools interested in first aid call St John Ambulance on (0118) 933 5514 or email email@example.com
