Grant for first aid courses

After over a year in the making, the Club is rapt to announce that the St John’s first aid course for our coaches & team managers has finally gone ahead – and been a big success!   

The full-day HLTAID011 Provide accredited first aid course was run at the Miles Park Clubrooms by the expert team at St John’s in July 2021.

The practical session included seven hours of demonstration, practise & skills assessment, including uninterrupted CPR for at least 2 minutes on an infant mannequin and adult mannequin on the floor, the use of an AED, and applying appropriate first aid procedures.

On successful completion of the assessments, our Club participants received a nationally-accredited Statement of Attainment.

In April 2020, the Club received approval for a grant by the City of Belmont’s Community Contribution Fund for $5,000 in order to fund these first aid courses. However, due to COVID & other circumstances, it was unable to go ahead and was moved forward to 2021.

We’d like to thank the very supportive team at City of Belmont, WA, who were instrumental in helping us get the grant money, and St John’s for the fantastic course. We hope to arrange more in the future!
