For their Community Project this year, year 9 students have been taking part in the Helmets for Kids campaign.
In October, students from 9H raised awareness of the importance of wearing helmets by delivering informative presentations to Year 5 at Tu Xuong and Year 6 at AP1. Hopefully the invaluable lessons that they learnt will be passed down to other students at BIS!
Yesterday, was the first of our two Helmets for Kids fairs taking place this school year. 45 students from our Community Partner, Huynh Van Ngoi Government School, came for a fun afternoon of activities based around road and helmet safety.
9S, 9I and 9C spoke to the students about the dangers of not wearing a helmet and highlighted the scary statistics of fatal road accidents in Vietnam – did you know that nearly 78% of Vietnam’s road fatalities are a result of a head injury?
After that, there were 5 helmet based activities and Huynh Van Ngoi students were able to have fun whilst learning why helmets are so important! To finish the afternoon, the winners of each activity were awarded helmets that they could take home.
The Year 9’s demonstrated their capabilities of strong leadership, communication and organisation before and during the fair. They succeeded in sending a clear and important message whilst not forgetting to have fun at the same time. Well done!
We all look forward to the next fair on 18th February.
