Bicycle Helmets Safety Campaign



1 November 2021

A reminder to all parents and students that as of 1 November 2021 if you cycle to/from this school you must wear a bicycle helmet. Why wait until then? We are asking all students who cycle to school to begin wearing your helmet now. We want to build a culture within our community of placing safety first!

Below you will find an instructional video from Aidan Hammond of Bike Fitting Ireland ( explaining what to look out for when purchasing your helmet and how to wear it properly.

Check, if your are buying a new helmet or have an old one, that it conforms to the correct safety standards. The safety standard mark you are looking for is CE1078. Aidan explains all in his video.

Aidan Hammond is a past pupil of St Declan's College and Ireland’s most experienced bike fitter. Over the past 20 years he has fitted bikes at his bike fit studio for over 10,000 of Ireland’s cyclists & triathletes, from novices to professionals.
