What else do I need to know?
Here's some additional information you might need to know
Decide on your location
• Find a room with enough space for all the students to attend,
and take part in practical activities.
• Having a ‘special’ venue such as a room usually reserved for
older students will help to raise the status of the club.
• Take opportunities to move the club out of the classroom, lab
or workshop – outside space is great for giving students
opportunities to consider the different places first aid may be
useful, especially if the club is for playground first aiders or
for practicing for a competition.
Inviting parents in for a special event where the students show
them what they are doing in their club is a great way to get the
wider family involved.
Try holding a first aid evening where they get to take part in
some of the activities their children have been doing. The students
could even use it to fundraise for St John Ambulance.
Recognise your students’ efforts
