CPR for Schools

Take part in our CPR contest!

Taking part in the CPR for Schools competition is a  great way of testing your pupils' knowledge in a completely new, creative way. Schools which are actively participating in our CPR for Schools educational programme are all invited to take part in this exciting competition! The aim of this nationwide educational initiative is introducing universally accessible CPR education to all primary schools in the country. So far, the programme is implemented in over 92% of schools in Poland, and it means that over 3 million primary school children have learned the basics of first aid: they know whom to call for help, what information to tell the emergency personnel, they also learn how to administer CPR and how to behave in a variety of dangerous situations.

We often hear about little heroes in the news - children who knew exactly what to do to save others. It takes very little to actually help, but children need to be taught not to fear taking up action and responsibility for their actions, and that's why our programme is so important in developing civic skill-set in young children. Schoolchildren are taught by their teachers who are trained by our instructors in free, two-day courses. The schools willing to participate in the programme also receive all teaching aids and materials free of charge. 

 

Finał 6. edycji Konkursu w Warszawie

 

The nationwide contest will consist of 3 stages, each focused on skills connected with what children have learned during their CPR for schools classes. The final of the competition, which will take place in Warsaw, on June the 5th. 

To enter into the competition, the schools should submit a poster (B1 format) on one of the following topics: 

  • chain of survival 
  • calling for help 
  • CPR 
  • recovery position

The main theme of this stage of the competition is to find the differences, so each poster should contain a task based on the educational poster (so the work should be comprised of 2 parts). Deadline for submission falls on 30.03 2018. Winners of this stage of the competition will be revealed on April the 4th and will be invited to take part in the next stage of our educational game!
