The Jassy Dean Trust is running two short courses this August which will teach parents and caregivers how to perform CPR on infants and children.
“The health and wellbeing of Waiheke children is vitally important to us as a group and equipping parents with the ability to perform CPR is one way we can act as the fence at the top of the cliff rather than the ambulance at the bottom” says Anna Lowe, the organiser of the course.
Taught by Charli Crocker, the first course of the day will be run free for the mothers and staff who are part of Te Pa Harakeke Young Mums Group. Coordinator of the Te Pa Harakeke, Timmy Smith, says “ This is a enormous gift that Jassy Dean is giving to our community and especailly our group. Charli is an incredible facilitator and I know we will all gain so much from this experience and learning”.
The second course on the day will be open to parents and caregivers who have children under five years old. Spaces for the public course are limited to twenty people and spots are already filling fast. To book a place on this course email Anna Lowe on firstname.lastname@example.org. Places will be held on a first come, first served basis. On-site childcare will be provided for those that need it.
Due to the high level of interest in the course from parents and caregivers the Jassy Dean Trust will be making the CPR workshops a regular event on the island. If parents are unable to attend this course they are encouraged to contact Anna to have their name added to the waiting list for the next event.
