MEDICS OF THE FUTURE ATTEND PRESTIGIOUS NORTH WEST EVENT
Aspiring nurses, doctors and paediatricians from the local area attended the highly prestigious North West Medical event hosted at Bury College.
Year 10 and year 11 high school pupils with an interest in a career within the medical profession were invited to enjoy a day of four medical related workshops. This included Emergency Medical Assistance, Diagnostics, Anatomy and Medical Ethics. These tasks provided high school pupils with the knowledge on how to respond to ethical situations, examine x-rays and use stethoscopes as well as partake in practical workshops where they performed CPR; a universally recognised life-saving skill.
Pupils from Bury Grammar School Girls, Tottington High School, Parrenthorn High School, Castlebrook High School, Middleton Technology School, Falinge Park High School, Holy Family RC and CE College, St Monica’s RC High School, St Gabriel’s RC High School and Wardle Academy all attended the raising aspirations event which was organised by MCS Projects Ltd.
15 year Evie Gray, from Wardle Academy, said, “The event has been interesting and I really liked taking part in the practical activities. My favourite bit was learning how to perform CPR and it has given me the confidence to use these skills in the real world.”
Anna Harris, Science Teacher from Middleton Technology School added, “Today has been a good experience for our six school pupils and has inspired them to start making early preparations for the future.”
