Duke of Edinburgh students learn CPR

A group of Year 9 and 10 students taking part in the Duke of Edinburgh (DofE) Award scheme had the opportunity to learn life-saving skills, when they were shown CPR after school.

Mr Marsh led the class, showing the students a video, before giving instruction on how to administer chest compressions and rescue breaths.
The Academy's Duke of Edinburgh’s Award group meets once a week and has gone from strength to strength during the past 8 years.

The 35 students currently working towards their Bronze award are learning first aid, camp crafts, team building and navigation. They started the programme in November and are due to finish in April. They will also take part in two camps in March and April in the Peak District.

Doing a DofE programme significantly impacts young people’s futures, enabling them to develop vital skills for life and work, such as confidence, commitment, resilience and team work. Widely acknowledged as the world’s leading achievement award for young people, Manchester Academy hold a licence to deliver DofE programmes to anyone between the ages of 14-24 years old.
