Win a Safety Prize!

A number of prizes were donated to the school from our community partners following Safety Week and we thought we’d give them out to families as part of a contest.

Prize 1: Firstly, we wish to thank the City of Vaughan Paramedics for visiting our school during Safety Week.  They have kindly provided us with five Family & Friends CPR Anytime kits. Each kit includes materials necessary for a family to learn potentially live-saving hands-only CPR.  For your chance to win one of these kits, simply answer the following question:

An AED (Automated External Defibrillator) is a device that is used to get a heart back to its natural rhythms by delivering an electrical shock to the heart during a cardiac arrest. Typically, you can find AEDs in malls, community centres, and other public places.  Where is the AED located at Bakersfield Public School?

Submit your answer to and the first five Bakersfield families with the correct answer will win!

Prize 2: We also wanted to thank York Region Community and Health Services for two days of Bicycle Safety workshops for our kindergarten to grade five students.  We learned about identifying the components of a safe bike, about brain fragility and proper helmet fit and about road safety.  We have a Bicycle Safety prize pack to give away, as well!  For your chance to win this prize pack, simply answer the following question:

Head injuries are the leading cause of serious injury and death to children on wheels.  Wearing a properly fitted, certified helmet can reduce the risk of serious head injury by up to 85 percent.  Helmets must fit properly to protect your child in the event of a crash.  During the Bike Safety presentation, students learned how to make sure that their helmet fits correctly using the ______ rule.  What is the rule called?  (See if your child remembers!)

Submit your answer by tomorrow at noon to and one Bakersfield family with the correct answer will be randomly selected to win!

Good luck!
