Dear Ski Lift Operators

Thank you for supporting Karoro School with the amazing ski trip. I was one of the more advanced kids so I got to go up the top of the mountain and do whatever I wanted. Without you it wouldn't be possible for us or people on holiday to ski up the mountain.

I went up the magic carpet, poma, chairlift and t-bar. My favorite lift was the chairlift because you don't put any effort into your legs and back but when you get to the top you can do the Cat Track because of the jumps.

Once again thank you for the opportunity.

St John Response

Yesterday on the 3/9/19 we had a St John personal to come to Karoro School and teach us how to
do CPR and use a Defib.

The lady from St John's gave us a card which had the doctors a b c d. D=danger this means look
for dangers and make sure there is nothing to hurt you. R= check for a response to do that “can you
hear me”. S= Send for help and see if they have a phone if you don't have one. A= check their airway
and if their stomach is rising. B= Check if they have normal breathing do this by listening and feeling.
C= Now if they don't respond to the other steps do CPR 30 compressions after that blow into mouth
two times. D= attach a defib if available and the defib will talk you through how to use it.

I really enjoyed the St John training it will be good if I got put in this situation.


I Really enjoyed this because if someone in my family has had a heart attack and if they had one
at home I would know what to do.  Also if I was put into this situation walking from school.
