Hearty Lives Project

Nation of Lifesavers Launch

On Thursday the 16th October, the British Heart Foundation Launched it's new Nation of Lifesavers Campaign the aim of which is that all young people and adults learn lifesaving CPR skills. The charity says the initiative could save around 100 lives a week – the equivalent of approximately 5,000 a year. The BHF's new strategy includes the rollout of a new, quick-and-simple CPR training programme, a continued call to ensure all young people learn CPR at school and a commitment to running mass awareness CPR campaigns. The BHF's innovative training programme enables schools, workplaces and community groups to become completely self-sufficient in teaching the three simple steps that could save a life: Call. Push. Rescue

Nine St Benedict's pupils were invited to attend this launch at the British Heart Foundation shop in Stockwell Street, Glasgow. Despite the launch taking place during the October break the pupils grabbed this opportunity demonstrating their commitment to the school, the Hearty Lives Project and the British Heart Foundation. The pupils are one of the first groups to be trained using the new 'Call, Push, Rescue' programme and a number of them were later featured on the STV news, Radio Clyde news and in the Daily Record.


Pupils who have questions about the Hearty Lives Project or wish to find out more about how they can get involved should speak to Mrs McCartney in the PE Department.
