Year 11 Meet Education Minister
On Wednesday 24th September two year 11 pupils, Ben McCallin and Caolan Lavery, accompanied by their teacher, Mrs Corrigan, attended the Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Guideline Launch for Schools at Parliament Buildings, Stormont.
“Mr John O’Dowd, the Education Minister, gave us some tips on how to pick out a defibrillator,” Ben said, “and he also informed on how to use one.”
Ben concluded, “I learned a lot from Mr O’Dowd’s presentation and look forward to the school participating in this campaign.”
The school has worked tirelessly to purchase a defibrillator with numerous fundraising events last year and donations from the local community. Our aim is to have a defibrillator available in the school after Christmas, at the latest.
