Visit to SafetyWorks! by Castle Views Enterprise Academy
Castle View Enterprise Academy Year 8 students recently visited SafetyWorks! and reported the visit in their July issue of their newsletter.
Year 8 students went to Newcastle to visit Safety Works, which is an indoor interactive centre and it is used to teach children about safety in the community. It is made to look like a movie set with six or seven scenarios, which include Metro platforms, Sainsbury’s, a road and an A&E hospital room. Here, students learned vital first aid skills, such as treating burns, performing CPR and treating fractures and breaks.
Safety Works is sponsored by a number of organisations, such as, Tyne and Wear Fire Service and Northumbria Police. Many of the Year 8 visitors had a go at using a defibrillator, which is commonly used for treatment in life-threatening emergencies.
All of the students learnt a variety of things, such as how to use the Metro platform ‘Help Point’ or the age limits for buying certain things, such as fireworks.
The Year 8 students loved this trip, and not just because they were getting out of the
Academy for a day, or was it?
