First aid is critically important, especially in schools where it is crucial to be able to react quickly to accidents and emergencies in order to limit the effect of injuries on children.

The need to learn and be trained in first aid in schools is vital. First, most parents rely on teachers and other school staff to take good care of their children once they put them into school. While the children are there, parents should feel at ease knowing that the teachers

are capable and prepared to do everything in their power to make sure that the students are safe and sound whilst in their care.

It is the responsibility of the school and its staff to foster a healthy and secured learning environment for their young students. Part of this responsibility is ensuring teachers and other school staff, have enough knowledge about first aid training to cope with any situation.

Being trained in first aid administration certifies that a school can provide their students a healthy and safe environment for learning and education, just as it should be.
