THROUGHOUT our lives we pick up many different skills along the way, so we went to Whickham School to ask staff what they think their most valued skill is.

Steve Haigh, 53, head teacher from Burnopfield, said: "If there's a skill I have got I would value the most it is the skill that could save someone's life at some stage."

Hogarth, 35, events coordinator from Whickham, said: "I am a first aider and I have to use it every day in school, either for a minor cut right to broken bones and calling an ambulance. It's important."

Deborah Camsell, 39, a cover supervisor from Whickham, said: "I'm a first aider as well and I use those skills on a daily basis, and I have also found that it's transferred away from school, using it on my family."

Ryan Murphy, 31, a sport centre manager from Low Fell, said: "Anything that could save a life is an important skill to me, which is why I want to do more in that area especially."
