    On Monday 16th October over 200 students from Year 9, 10 and 12 were trained in CPR for Restart a Heart Day. The British Heart Foundation have supplied us with a full kit of training equipment and a fabulous team of First Responders from East Midlands Ambulance Service came to school for the day to show our students how to use it. They had a great day at QEGS and said that our students were a pleasure to teach.
