Students at Emneth Primary School learnt how to save a life thanks to an East Anglian Air Ambulance critical-care paramedic.
Neil Flowers, who has been a paramedic with EAAA for over seven years, ran three interactive workshops with students in year five and six, teaching basic life support skills, including the recovery position and CPR.
At the end of each session, pupils received a certificate and badge to take home and show what they had learned.
Kate and Lorraine, teaching assistants and part of the charity committee at Emneth Primary School, said: “The pupils were very engaged and enthusiastic whilst learning these valuable skills.”
Earlier this year the pupils voted for EAAA as their charity of the year and raised valuable funds during National Air Ambulance Week in September.
