Our small group of homeschooling girls had the opportunity to learn the basic life-saving skills and first aid from a sweet sister here in Doha. Alhamdulillaah the girls really enjoyed understanding first aid and learning the many different skills using very practical methods,
Watch my Instagram Story here to see videos of some practicals done at the course, inshaa Allaah
Alhamdulillaah. Here are some highlights.
This was a two-day workshop (8 hours) and the sister explained the most important skills. At the end of the workshop, the girls had a theory paper and a practical test. Alhamdulillaah all did well.
The sister provided some fantastic notes to refer back and I can still see Maimoonah going through the notes every now and then. I think it was a very useful activity and a good change for the regular homeschooling routine too.
If you are in Doha and looking for your group of students to learn these essential skills, please contact me and I would be happy to share the sister's contact details.
If you are not in Doha, you can still try to organize someone in your local area and get your children to do something like this too. I see a big difference in Maimoonah after this workshop, that she is more alert, more vigilant and pretty much ready to handle an emergency, Alhamdulillaah. This course is really essential and suits children above 11 and 12.
We are glad we found the sister who was certified and qualified to do this course and she was extremely flexible and organized too. We also thank all the other girls and their parents for joining us a huge thank you and Jazzaakillaah Khayr to my friend Umm Aisha for her hospitality throughout the course.
