Honours Award for First Aid

HONOURS AWARD FOR FIRST AID
Connor Yeaman
Connor has been an exceptional first aider and a key member and a leader in the First Aid Club. He has shown dedication to College first aid and has developed his practical skills while serving the community on ambulance services.
Connor joined the club in Grade 8 and completed the Level 1, 2 and 3 courses before Grade 10. He went on to complete the Student Intermediate Life Support course and, with that qualification, has been able to volunteer for the ER 24, Emer-G-Med and Gardmed Ambulance services. During his time as a volunteer, he has grown in confidence and skill and has learned much from the debriefs after each patient treatment.
Despite these advanced qualifications, Connor has dedicated many hours to the club, through first aid service, teaching others, and in a leadership role. He has mentored newer, younger members of the club, giving up his own time to teach and train them. Particularly over the past two years, Connor has assisted in the management of first aid at College by taking responsibility for the duty rosters and ensuring that all first aid requests are met. On Saturdays, he is the first to arrive at the side of the rugby field and the last to leave. Without volunteers like Connor, sport that requires a first aider would not take place.
Connor has an excellent knowledge of emergency care and is calm and capable in the face of an emergency. He is deserving of this Honours Award for First Aid in recognition of his exceptional service at a level well beyond the standard expected at school.
