Our extracurricular activities take our helmet safety curriculum out of the classroom and into the schoolyard. This month, we used interactive games to reinforce students’ road safety knowledge as part of the Helmets for Kids program sponsored by the Australian Road Research Board (ARRB). Activities included a painting contest, a bicycle race, and a quiz to test students on road safety knowledge. Two local primary schools in Siem Reap participated in the activities, with 200 students attending from Phum O Primary School and 300 students and teachers from Kiru Kosal Anuk Wat Primary School. Local traffic police led the sessions at Kiru Kosal Anuk Wat Primary School, which is located on a busy highway in Siem Reap Province.
ARRB, which provides research services in the road and transport industries, began collaborating with AIP Foundation in 2012. The two organizations recently partnered on a new Helmets for Kids program, which aims to make young road users role models in their community.
