The JE3 and Heartwise Foundation work with Year 5

It is now two years since the passing of the former Tottenham defender and Leyton Orient manager, Justin
Edinburgh. Sadly, in June 2019, he suffered a cardiac arrest and passed away at the age of 49.
Set up in his memory, The JE3 Foundation aims to support UK health heart charities and to campaign for
legislative change – Justin’s Law – to make it compulsory for all health, fitness and sports facilities to be
equipped with a Public Access Defibrillator (PAD).

Last week our Year Five students, alongside Tottenham player Japhet Tanganga and Leyton Orient player
Adam Thompson, took part in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training to help raise awareness of
cardiac arrests and give people the ability and confidence to save lives. By administrating CPR, it increases the
possibility of surviving cardiac arrest. The session was wonderfully led by Heartwize and has given our
children an excellent opportunity to grasp this life-saving skill. Please follow the link here to see the full BBC
