Dromana College has run an in-school First Aid Program through St John Ambulance Victoria for over 20 years.
At Year 9 and 10, students are able to select St John Ambulance as an elective subject. This involves enrolling as a St John youth member and completing the nationally accredited Provide First Aid certificate at Yr 9 and an Advanced First Aid certificate at Yr 10. At both years, students are provided opportunities to gain supervised hands-on experience at school events.
Students who wish to continue in St John Ambulance beyond Yr 10 are able to participate in adult training, which occurs around once a month after school onsite, and go out on St John duties within the community.
