Luton children learn lifesaving first aid

Luton children learn lifesaving first aid

Today, (Thursday 24 March) children at Norton Road Primary School learnt potentially lifesaving first aid skills taught by a specialist trainer from Active Luton.

The specially designed sessions educated students on recognising a medical emergency and how to keep the person safe until help arrives. They also learnt how to handle someone who is unconscious using the recovery position, as well as recognising and treating a bleed. Children were then encouraged to share what they learnt with family and friends to spread their lifesaving skills. While dealing with a very serious subject, the emphasis of the day was on having fun learning first aid and linking these skills to the rest of their learning in school including literacy, numeracy and of course science. Click here to read more.

Health station keeps Luton on track

Health station keeps Luton on track

Active Luton’s Health Station had a successful week in The Mall recently when more than 300 people took advantage of the opportunity to check the state of their health quickly and conveniently, and for free.

The Health Station gives you a picture of the state of your health in just four minutes. It measures your heart rate, blood pressure and BMI and gives you a ‘heart age’ from your results. If your ‘heart age’ is below your actual age, then you’re doing well. If your ‘heart age’ is more than your actual age, then you may need to make some changes. In particular the checks can highlight any potential problems which could put your health at risk and may need further investigation by a doctor. Click here to read more.
