Parmiter’s promote performance under pressure!

We had to think very hard about Parmiter’s Effective Learning bid for First Aid Training to all Year 9 students.  The project did not easily fit into our Effective Learning criteria, but we were keen to award the money if possible as you can’t put a price on saving a life and First Aid is such an important life-skill for people of any age to have.

We decided that First Aid training’s practical, hands-on learning experience, coupled with developing teamwork and the confidence to think calmly and clearly under pressure were effective learning skills that could be applied to other areas of the curriculum as well as to this vital knowledge and skill base.

Saving a life also ties in with the school's motto:  nemo sibi nascitur - do unto others as you would have them do unto you (yes, I had to Google the translation).
