teachers were trained how to give potentially life-saving CPR as part of a nationwide project.

Sads UK, a charity for Sudden Arrhythmic Death Syndrome, is encouraging more schools to have teachers trained in CPR as well as having a defibrillator installed.

West Hill Park School, on St Margaret’s Lane in Titchfield, is the latest to have its teachers trained and was visited by paramedics to learn how to use the defibrillator machine.

Anne Jolly, chief executive of the charity, said: ‘It’s important that schools have this equipment and trained teachers.

‘It’s brilliant that West Hill Park agreed to have the defibrillator installed and it is becoming more common for schools to have them now which is great.’
