FOUR cadets from Chichester High School Combined Cadet Force (CCF) were over the moon after storming a first aid competition.

James Lee, Harley Allan, John Britten and John Scott participated in the 2 Bde and 145 Bde combined regional first aid competition at Bramley Weekend Training Centre.

Not only did they storm the CCF qualifying stage to go to the nationals at the Royal Military Academy in Sandhurst last October, but they also achieved the highest score, beating the ACF and ATC teams too.

Cadet James Lee was awarded a second medal for the highest individual score in the competition. The team passed their St John’s Ambulance Youth First Aider Award, which was run at their contingent.

With only three weeks to go until the competition, they put in extra hours’ training to give them a fighting chance, and it certainly paid off.

Headteacher Gavin Salvesen-Sawh said: “I was delighted to be asked to present our CCF students with their first aid medals. The students are a credit to the school, showing dedication and determination to achieve such a high standard.”
