As a school, every day, we are dealing with hundreds of active children, who highly susceptible to accidents. It is imperative that every adult who deals with them has the knowledge to offer first aid, when there is a need.
All staff of our school both teaching and support staff across the three campuses have undergone the BLS training with the Columbia Asia Hospital, Whitefield.
Basic Life Support (BLS) refers to the act of supporting an unconscious patient’s breathing and circulation in order to preserve their life and buy time for professional emergency medical attention.
We are certain that this advantage will be extended to society at large by every staff member of Deens Academy, in times of a crisis.
In addition all members of our transport and housekeeping staff receive extensive routine training in driving, housekeeping and first aid. A matron/ driver or cleaner accompanies children in every trip inside and outside the school. He/She is trained regularly to handle every contingency and ensures the safety of all children under his/her care.
