The workshop taught the pupils how to do Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (C.P.R.), a life-saving technique used in emergencies such as a cardiac arrest, drowning and heart attack. Practice drills were conducted so the pupils could perfect the method of C.P.R. The pupils were also taught first aid techniques to save themselves and others from snake bites, dog bites, monkey bites, bee stings, drowning and a heat stroke.
