Personal Safety & Injury Prevention

Personal safety and injury prevention are essential to active and healthy living. Education in these areas plays a key role in applying health knowledge and making decisions about personal health. Most accidents and injuries are both predictable and preventable. Students can learn how to be actively involved in their own safety and to care about the safety of others.

Rowan's Law Day Toolkit

OPHEA has developed a toolkit to help schools and classrooms recognize Rowan’s Law Day and encourage students to speak up about concussions.

The toolkit contains sample tools to support recognition of Rowan’s Law Day at your school and to spark conversation among students, staff, and the school community about concussion awareness. Select the tools that suit your school and students best or to use the toolkit as a guide to inspire your own ideas.

The toolkit includes:

  • Information about Rowan Stringer and Rowan’s Law Day
