STUDENTS from Bromsgrove School became more stroke aware after a visit from an expert in the field.
James Benson from the Stroke Association spoke to the school’s MedVet (medic, veterinary and healthcare) Society about the FAST campaign, encouraging them to pass on what they had learnt during the session.
A spokesperson said James had been working with MedVet students for the last four years and, with his expertise as a physiotherapist, offered a fantastic training provision for those looking to study these subjects at university.
“The school is delighted James will be returning in June to run a training day for the medics, which they will then be able to use in their applications for courses in medicine, physiotherapy, dentistry or nursing.”
Several of Bromsgrove Schools International Baccalaureate students have also been supporting and fund-raising for the Stroke Association through their Creativity, Action and Service Programme (CAS).
Recently pupils helped out at the Stroke Association’s 10K event at Ragley Hall – as marshals, handing out goody bags and cheering on the runners.
The charity was very impressed with the students and thankful for their time, effort and support.
