In mid-June, the entire teaching staff from Thesaban Tambon Tha Pair School and Rajaprajanugroh 4 School participated in a road safety training hosted by AIP Foundation as part of the Helmets for Kids program. In total, 30 participants attended the training, including 22 teachers. Participants learned basic road safety knowledge and skills, including how to create engaging lessons for their students.

The following day, all 22 teachers from Thesaban Tambon Tha Pair School and Rajaprajanugroh 4 School set up stations around their schools to help students learn about helmet use and road safety basics. Each station focused on a different road safety concept, including the importance of helmet use, correct helmet wearing, and proper helmet care. Among the highlights, the student training included a helmet safety demonstration with a watermelon to illustrate why wearing a helmet can save one’s life in the event of a road crash. In total, 446 participants attended the student training, including 416 students. Chevron’s Government Affairs Coordinator Damrongsak Sukprajan attended both the teacher and student trainings.

The Helmets for Kids program, implemented in Nakhon Si Thammarat province, is supported by Chevron Thailand Exploration & Production Ltd.
