The American Heart association awarded a grant to Hawaii Catholic Schools to obtain CPR Training Kits that would enable students to become CPR-certified.

“Our goal is to have every graduate from our schools leave us with confidence and ability to perform CPR.  We deeply appreciate their support in making this goal a reality,” said Superintendent Mike Rockers, thanking the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Foundation and the American Heart Association for their generous gift.

The CPR in Schools Training Kit is a classroom-based program designed to teach the core skills of CPR in under 30 minutes. The kit contains everything needed to facilitate a CPR in Schools training class for 10 students at once. The process can be repeated to train an entire class, grade, or an entire school. Our hope is that all 8th graders graduating from our schools be trained in CPR.

Kim Williams, from the AMA, trained teachers and administrators from participating school how to use the kits on August 9th at the auditorium at St. Stephens Diocesan Center.

In order to receive a CPR Training Kit, the school principal or their representative was required to attend the training and be committed to facilitate school training. The neighbor-island schools will have their kits mailed directly to their schools. The Oahu schools will be able to obtain their kits at SSDC.
