Tiwisada, which means little doctor, is one of the favorite extra curriculums in Petra 10 Christian Elementary School. Not all students in the school can join “Tiwisada”. The ones who would like to join “Tiwisada” should fulfill some requirements as follows :
Tiwisada is taught by a doctor and a teacher (as the assistance). The activities are not only learning the theories but also practicing. The cadres practice to measure the weigh, height, blood pressure, and body temperature, and also to give the first aid for other students who are hurt or have broken bones.
These are the tools needed and steps to handle a broken thighbone patient : Tools :
Here are the steps for helping the patient by using a stretcher :
The cadres do not practice only in the extra curriculum session, but they are also in duty during the break time for a certain day. Their duties are watering the medical herbs and helping other students when they are hurt or felt down.
