In November due to the kind donation of a local resident, St Pius X Catholic High School were provided with funds to purchase a defibrillator for the school. Many organisations now have this equipment to use in an emergency, and St Pius X is only one of two schools to have one of these in this area.
The lady who donated the defibrillator came into school on 12 November to present it to Headteacher, Mr Tony Bishop. The generous lady is Mrs Mary Agnes Rotherham, aged 91, pictured with Mr Tony Bishop. The school is very grateful to Mrs Rotherham.
Later that day twelve members of staff were trained to use the defibrillator.
