The Brains Matter Helmet Awareness Program is a free education program centred on the importance of wearing a helmet when riding a bicycle. It is specifically aimed at children in Years 3-6 and their parents.

The program is delivered to local primary schools in the Canterbury-Bankstown local government area by paramedics Kobie Shaw and Gerry Pyke. Kobie is keen to share her personal story about her bike accident and recovery. Both Kerry and Gerry volunteer to deliver this program in their free time.

Given the importance of bicycle safety, such a program can provide primary students with the necessary information to keep them safe while riding a bike by emphasising the importance of wearing a helmet.
