National Pool Lifeguard Qualification

life saving

Last week saw 6 boys from years 11 complete the National Pool Lifeguard Qualification here at school as well as Andrew Parker renewing his qualification.

The qualification is a 36 hour course with a final external assessment at the end, which all the boys completed and passed with 100% to their names.

The qualification covers 3 sections:

1: The Lifeguard and The Law, Swimming Pool Hazards and Control Measures and Supervision

2: Intervention, Rescue and Emergency Action plan

3: Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation, AED and First Aid

With this qualification the boys could now seek part time employment whilst continuing their studies. More importantly they have learnt some very important life skills.

Well done to the boys: Andrew Parker, Patrick McGrath, Sam Wainman, Cameron Fairbairn, Esa Naseem, Francis Harrsion, Daniel Emsley.
