Seahouses Primary School pupils took part in first aid courses.

Children across the school took part in first aid courses, with the younger children learning how to call for help and position people in the recovery position.

Older pupils then learnt more complex life-saving techniques using a range of realistic dummies and life -ike models. They are all now qualified first aiders.

Year 6 student Ethan said: “I feel more confident now. I genuinely think that if I was called upon I could save a person’s life. I can’t think of a more important skill to learn at school, can you?”

After life-saving, the children moved swiftly on to music-making as they were treated to a personalised performance by Durham University’s Chamber Choir and orchestra as they performed their rendition of Cantata Dramtica’s story of St Cuthbert.

Year 2 pupil Riley said: “I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. I loved listening to all of the instruments together in the orchestra.”
