Why Calder House?


A man was walking along the beach one day. Ahead he noticed another, older man picking up a starfish that had become stranded on the sand and throwing it back into the sea.

Why do you bother?” the man asked him. “The beach goes on for miles and countless starfish get stranded every day. You can’t really make a difference.

The old man looked at the starfish in his hand and then he threw it to safety among the waves. “I can make a difference to this one,” he replied.

Countless children feel stranded at school. For some Calder House can make a real difference.

Quick! Pass the bandages...

On Friday June 10 two teams of Y6 pupils set off early from School for the long trip to Portsmouth to take part in the regional round of the St John's Ambulance School First Aid Competition.

The competition was to take place at the Royal Marines Museum in Portsmouth and the children, accompanied by Mr Day and Miss Kennedy, acquitted themselves very well indeed.
Even though neither team made it through to the National Finals they performed very well under rigerous testing situations. While one group were dealing with a bloody nose and an unconscious man the other had to deal with a nasty burn. Both teams were then grilled by one of the St John's Staff on their First Aid knowledge. The teams had obviously been prepared well by Mrs Davis and Mr Perks and they sailed through these tests.
First Aid is a topic that we take very seriously at school and all the children in the Purple and Brown Class have enormously enjoyed the recent activity sessions.
