Over the past term, a group of our Year 9 students have been carving out their place in the community by becoming fully trained “Mini Medics!”, led by First Aid Trainer and member of the school Inclusion Team, Katie Gaetan.

The students have proved they aren’t just the people needed in an emergency situation; they can help themselves and their friends with life-long issues like understanding emotions and coping with stress. The Mini Medics have trained hard to learn life-saving First Aid but have also demonstrated their new found understanding of mental health – creating “Mental Health First Aid Kits” for children and young people to use in difficult times. Students here are always encouraged to take an active role in their health and well-being and our Mini Medics helps raise awareness of the struggles that so many people face, but still feel unable to talk about. The Mini Medics at Bulmershe help our students know that we are a listening school, a school where we look at the whole student, not just their grades. The Bulmershe School is proud to be part of our community and help shape it’s future leaders, we are of course extremely proud of all our newly qualified Mini Medics! Well done Year 9!
