Kandos High School is now the proud owner of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) thanks to the Here for Hearts Schools Program.
The Program is a partnership between Westfund and the Defibshop which is designed to save lives by increasing awareness of sudden Cardiac Arrest and the importance of defibrillators in the community.
The school’s successful application will benefit not just the school but the wider Kandos community, with the AED installed in Kandos Returned Services Community Club.

“Westfund are pleased to assist Kandos High in securing an AED, which may one day save a life,” Mrs Maloney said. Bowden’s Silver covered the cost of the AED.
