St Johns Training

Donna from the St John’s charity came and taught students from the Kawau team about taking care of ourselves. Donna also taught us how to treat a person with heat stroke or hypothermia.

First we learned about minor wounds, stings and burns. Donna instructed us what to do when you get a minor wound. Donna immediately put us into groups and we cleaned and bandaged the different types of wounds that Donna had drawn on us with a red whiteboard marker.

After that we learned about burns and if  Donna drew a burn on our hands, we had to had to run it under cold water for 20 min(it was just a cup with no water) Next we covered it with glad wrap.Then we learned  about stings. Donna said the very first thing you have to do when you when you get a sting is ask the patient if they had got stung before. Next we had to pull it out as fast as we could with a card or piece of paper. You can also do it with you nail. Later, we froze it with an icepack.
