I was thrilled to receive an email from Katy telling me that my name was drawn as the winner for completing the resource review survey. The prize was a Bike Skills course provided by a WestCycle’s Auscycle coach.
I placed the following info in our school newsletter:
“Your child will have the opportunity to take part in three Bike Skills sessions to be held at school on the 2nd, 8th and 9th November. To take part your child needs to have a bike, a helmet, suitable footwear and signed permission forms. Places are limited to the first 15 children so your forms will need to be returned to me in B4 ASAP.” Maria Clapsis – Travel Smart Co-ordinator
The first half hour of each session was devoted to our pre-primary children and the remaining one and a half hours to children from years 1 – 6.
We were fortunate to have Leigh, a qualified bike instructor from WestCycle, at the school to teach groups of children the basics of bike riding. The children enjoyed three sessions learning to ride confidently and safely through demos and practical activities.
Thanks to the Travel Smart organization for making it possible. Our children have gained bike knowledge, skills and confidence which will make their future bike riding safe and fun.
