Cabot Academy stu­dents re­ceive hel­mets

The Compass - - CLASSIFIED -

The North Shore Cen­tral Am­bu­lance Co-op, in as­so­ci­a­tion with lo­cal busi­nesses and com­mu­nity sup­port­ers, re­cently pre­sented some 30 stu­dents in Kinder­garten and Grade 1 at Cabot Academy, Western Bay with new bi­cy­cle hel- mets. The in­tent was to teach young chil­dren the im­por­tance of wear­ing a bi­cy­cle hel­met. Be­cause of the strong sup­port of area busi­nesss and or­ga­ni­za­tions, the pro­gram was ex­panded. Ini­tially, or­ga­niz­ers had planned to do­nate “lids” to just the Kinder­gartens. In addition, draws were also held for a lucky stu­dent in Grades 2-6 to re­ceive a new hel­met. The ini­tia­tive was timely, since a lo­cal youth was in­jured and hos­pi­tal­ized re­centy fol­low­ing a bi­cy­cle mishap.
