Youngsters from two South Holland primary schools know what to do in an emergency after a day with St John Ambulance.

Pupils from Lutton St Nicholas and Gedney Church End Primary Schools learned how to respond in cases of bleeding and heart problems during an Engage day on Monday.

The Lutton school hosted the event where St John Ambulance trainer Darren Alcock showed youngsters how to resuscitate a patient, treat cuts, use a first aid kit and dress burns.

Diane Jacobs of Lutton St Nicholas Primary School, said: “We hold an Engage day where older pupils from both schools work together as we introduce and stimulate interest in our topic each term.

“This term, our topic is blood and the heart, so we asked St John Ambulance to come and do a first aid workshop so that children could engage with the topic.

“We spli the day into different sessions to look at bleeding, recovery positions and basic first aid.
