First Responders Provide Health Checks

By Lindy Moxham and Tom Sato, Grade 12 

During our inaugural Wellness Week February 26-March 2, the First Responders provided complimentary health checks for students and staff in the senior lobby. These health checks included blood pressure, blood glucose and heart rate monitoring, and were a great way to raise awar
eness within the school community about the First Responders program. It also afforded the First Responders a chance to practice their skills by giving staff and students quick check-ups on their vitals. The First Responders thank Mr. Butler and Ms. Breslin for organizing and supervising this activity.
