SLSWA Community Program Instructors Dara Mills and Andrea McDougall recently returned from a two week visit to the Kimberley Region, where they delivered valuable first aid and CPR education to over 150 students in these remote communities:

St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School (Kununurra)
Ngalangangpum School (Warmun)
Warlawurru Catholic School (Red Hill)
Birlirr Ngawiyiwu Catholic School (Ringer Soak)
Kururrungku Catholic Education Centre (Billiluna)
Luurnpa Catholic School (Balgo Hills)
Christ of the King Catholic School (Lombadina)
Sacred Heart School (Beagle Bay)
Wanalirri Catholic School (Gibb River)

With support from the Catholic Education Office, SLSWA instructors travel to regional Catholic Education Schools, providing teachers and students in remote communities with access to lifesaving knowledge and skills through delivery of the Life Skills for Life workshop.

Simulating real life scenarios through the use of first aid equipment, manikins and training defibrillators, Life Skills for Life equips students in Years 5 and 6 with the skills to respond effectively in common first aid and emergency situations.

Students from 22 schools in the Kimberley, South West, Goldfields and Wheatbelt regions have completed the Life Skills for Life program in 2018, with visits to the Pilbara and Mid-West regions scheduled for Term 3.
