Leah's CPR Exam Print E-mail

Today I had my CPR exam. I was pretty nervous for a bit of it but the exam isn’t too hard.

What we had to do was explain what would happen if we had to do CPR on someone, and what different roles and things were. I wasn’t as nervous because we got to practice with the dummies beforehand, though while I was practicing with the dummy I hurt my wrist again (I’ve hurt it before), and I couldn’t do compressions. The exam was kind of easy; you just had to remember what to do. Our whole group (2A) passed and I still could do the exam even with my sore wrist, I just counted the compressions. I had lots of fun and I enjoyed it heaps. Even though it was an exam our whole group enjoyed it as well.  

Leah, Beechworth

School For Student Leadership

School for Student Leadership is a Victorian Department of Education and Training (DET) initiative offering a unique residential education experience for year nine students. The curriculum focuses on personal development and team learning projects sourced from students' home regions. There are four campuses in iconic locations across Victoria. The Alpine School Campus is located at Dinner Plain in the Victorian Alps. Snowy River Campus is near the mouth of the Snowy River at Marlo in east Gippsland. The third site is adjacent to Mount Noorat near Camperdown in Victoria’s Western District, and is called Gnurad-Gundidj. After consultation with the local aboriginal community, this name represents both the indigenous name of the local area and an interpretation of the statement "belonging to this place". Our fourth and newest campus, currently known as the Don Valley Campus is located at Don Valley, Yarra Ranges.
Our school community acknowledges the Gunaikurnai and Monero-Ngarigo people as the traditional custodians of the land upon which our school campus is built. We pay our respects to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, their Elders past and present, and especially whose children attend our school.
