St John Ambulance Cadets

Dromana College in conjunction with St John Ambulance Australia is proud to offer the St John Ambulance Cadet Division Program at the college. St John Ambulance Australia is a national self-funding charitable organisation, active in every state and territory, dedicated to helping people in sickness, distress, suffering or danger. St John Ambulance has been active in Australia for over one hundred years, and is part of a wider international organisation with a long and honourable history. Our Operations Branch volunteers, in their familiar black-and-white uniforms, provide the highest quality first aid coverage at sporting and community events.

The Dromana College St John Ambulance Cadet Division is the second largest cadet division in the state of Victoria. The cadet program runs as an elective subject at Year 9 through to Year 12. St John Ambulance Cadets learn all aspects of first aid from bites and stings to oxygen therapy, defibrillation, to radio communications. After completing their preliminary first aid certificate, the cadets are eligible to attend duties with adult members of the Operations Branch. The duties, both local and state include events such as AFL football matches, rock concerts, Royal Melbourne Show, Grand Prix, Arthurs Seat Challenge and any event held with large numbers of people that require first aid services.
