Almost every child in the Western Isles has received Emergency Life Support Training.

A report going before the Comhairle's Education, Sport and Children's Services tomorrow (Tuesday) will hear that 874 pupils have received the training - representing 94.18 per cent of the total pupil roll for the schools concerned.

At its meeting in June 2016 the Comhairle approved a grant payment to Lucky2BHere for the provision of an outdoor defibrillator at each school in the Western Isles.

It was also agreed that Lucky2BHere volunteers would also deliver Emergency Life Support training at each of these schools.

This training was open to all school staff and to pupils from P5 upwards.

All schools now have an outdoor defibrillator installed and Lucky2BHere volunteers have made good progress in delivering training.

Only four schools remain to have training provided: Sir E Scott School, Leverhulme Memorial School, Stornoway Primary School and the Nicolson Institute.
