Year 9 Community Project – Helmets for Kids

11 November 2016

Year 9s have been busy over the last few weeks promoting their important Helmets for Kids campaign. 

  • Community Fair-1388
  • Community Fair-1371
  • Community Fair-1389
  • Community Fair-1398
  • Community Fair-1361
  • Community Fair-1372
  • Community Fair-1387

In October they were visited by Asian Injury Prevention Foundation who highlighted the damaging effects of what not wearing a helmet has on people and their families.

With the information given by AIP, Year 9 forms got to work preparing their campaign focussing on four key areas:

  1. Helmet monitoring at APS
  2. Making an awareness video
  3. Making awareness posters/leaflets
  4. Preparing a Helmet fair for a local primary school

Mr Whitely, Mrs Hadley and Mrs Sharman watched all the videos to see which one was the most effective in showing why wearing a helmet is so important. The entries were informative and creative but there had to be a winner. 

9B were awarded FIRST PLACE

9S were awarded SECOND PLACE

Well done to all.

Helmet fair

3rd November – 9B, 9I, 9S

10th November – 9V, 9N, 9H

Around 50 An Binh students visited BIS to take part in the two Helmet Fairs. Year 9 spoke to them 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 An Binh 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. Thank you to the APS PTG for their support in buying the helmets.

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!

Students will now take time to reflect upon their project and what they have learnt with the hope that they will continue to encourage everyone in the community to WEAR A HELMET!
