MIDLANDS AIR AMBULANCE VISIT
We've been lucky enough to have the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity visit us in school.
The charity is responsible for funding & operating three air ambulance helicopters, as well as a fleet of critical care cars that serve the communities of six Midlands counties - the largest air ambulance operating region in England!
The team delivered a whole school assembly this morning, before training our Y6 pupils in CPR. Every child also had the opportunity to visit a decommissioned air ambulance helicopter - which you may have seen outside the front entrance of our school!
The helipod is a mobile demonstration helicopter shell and provides the closest experience to an air ambulance without the need for the actual one! The interactive pod is a great teaching aid, taking learning out of the classroom.
