Brahmavar: A day-long workshop on Child Safety for parents and teachers was conducted at Little Rock Indian School, Brahmavar on Saturday, 24th November.
The workshop was led by a team of Paediatricians of ASTER – CMI Hospital, Bangalore. The team leader was Dr. Chetan Ginigeri, Head of Paediatric Critical Care at Aster-CMI. Dr. Praveen Kurup, Dr. Soumya Thomas and Dr. Sabreena were the other Resource Persons.
Around 150 parents and some 50 teachers attended the Workshop. The target group for this workshop was the parents of children studying in KG and Classes I to IV. More such workshops will be organised for the parents of older children eventually.
The doctors were assisted by a team from the Indian Institute of Emergency Medical Services (IIEMS), Kottayam, Kerala. Demonstration of Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) with the help of manikins and such emergency measures was carried out by this team.
The parents and teachers who attended this first-ever training workshop gave an overwhelming feedback and thanked the School for such a thoughtful initiative.
