First Aid Society

It is the service we are not obliged to give that people value the most.” – James Cash Penney

First aid is defined as the actions of a first responder in an emergency and/or accident situation. First Aid Society at Maritzburg College is all about affording the boys an opportunity for personal development and to empower themselves with the skills to help others in an emergency. The boys who join the group gain not only an understanding of how to help in a range of medical emergencies, but a number of invaluable, life-long skills.

Boys can choose to complete a Level 1 course in First Aid and a group of approximately sixteen First Aiders do duties at all the rugby, soccer and hockey fixtures at Maritzburg College.

Our College Sanatorium Sisters, local doctors and specialists offer an invaluable service to College First Aid.
