Remember always wear your bicycle helmet!
Second Class, Room Six conducted a survey about wearing bicycle helmets.
We asked each class from First to Sixth:
1. How many children have bicycles?
2. How many have helmets?
3. How many wear their helmets on their bicycle?
The findings were interesting.
We found that children in First Class were the most safety conscious.
Wearing a bicycle helmet can save your good looks.
A bicycle helmet can SAVE YOU FROM SERIOUS HEAD INJURY
A bicycle helmet can SAVE YOUR LIFE
These were the findings
Though 97 per cent of people had bicycle helmets
Only 61 per cent wore a helmet.
39 per cent didn’t.
Doctors and nurses who work in Accident and Emergency
would say that they wish people had to wear helmets by law
as they see serious head injuries from people who didn’t wear bicycle helmets.
When Garda Linda came to visit our class she said it was important too.
