Helmets on Kids – Peel is a joint venture of the Brain Injury Association of Peel and Halton, the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association, the Peel Children’s SafetyVillage, Peel Regional Police, Peel Public Health and Peel District School Board. The kick off event and safety assemblies are held every June to coincide with Brain Injury Awareness Month.

Peel Helmets on Kids Community Program, 2017

 Many Peel students in grades 3 and 4 will receive free bike helmets through this safety initiative co-ordinated by the Peel Children’s Safety Village.  The cost of the helmets has been generously covered by members of the Ontario Trial Lawyers Association.

Schools are selected based on data from the 2014 Social Risk Index.  This year we will be supplying helmets to selected students in grades 3 and 4 in the following schools:

Sir Winston Churchill PS                  Marvin Heights PS

Oakridge PS                                      Clifton PS

Ray Lawson PS                                Thornwood PS

Dunrankin PS                                    Ridgewood PS

Lancaster PS                                    Brian W. Fleming PS

Each of the schools participating in the Helmets On Kids initiative will enjoy a 25 minute educational safety assembly at their school presented by Peel Children’s Safety Village staff.  School staff pre-select students to receive a helmet who may not otherwise be able to acquire one.
