Frequently Asked Questions


What do children receive through the program?

Children learn a range of lifesaving skills that will equip them with the knowledge and confidence to respond to an emergency situation. Each child will also go home with a First Aid “show bag” that will enable them to continue their learning outside of the classroom, as well as a certificate of completion signed by their teacher.


Who are the supporters of this program?

First Aid in Schools is an initiative of St John Ambulance and is supported by Drakes, Toyota Motor Corporation, Sarah Constructions, CMI Toyota, Bendigo Bank, the South Australian Department for Education and Child Development, and On The Run.


In addition, we hold a number of initiatives throughout the year including our annual golf day to raise funds for the First Aid in Schools program. Generous donations are also made by members of the public who request that funds be used specifically for this initiative.
