And there is growing interest in schools to not only save lives but also push the important message that prevention is better than cure.

Students from the Jubilee Catholic Secondary School are the latest to graduate from the first aid in schools program.

A total of 358 Grade Nine students recently received certificates.

St John Ambulance head of Commercial training, Alicia Gegera, thanked the Sir Brian Bell Foundation for the funding made available in rolling out such programs in schools.

These funds were then donated to worthy recipients right across the country.

“We’re really, really proud that over the last couple of years, we’ve been able to provide donations to community groups for over K320,000,” said Brian Bell Group Chairman, Ian Clough.
