It was a warm and sunny day when Winterfold Primary School students went wobbling and shaking across the netball court! That’s right – today we held our Slow Bike Race!!
There was a great turn out across all the year levels and, even though parents were not allowed on site to watch, there was still a huge audience. The bike racks were full to overflowing!
We set off with Pink and Yellow Blocks at recess (PP – Year 3) followed by Blue and Red Blocks at lunch time (Year 3 – 6). The Your Move Committee members all had a role to play and executed these with finesse. Some organised the races, we had our starter and some to hand out stickers at the ends. The rest were judges. We didn’t realise how hard it would be to judge a slow bike race – not only looking at who crossed the finish line but also who put their foot down.
We had joint winners for Pink Block – Lachlan and Sammy, in Yellow Block it was Elly, Levi for Blue Block and Thomas crept over the finish line for Red Block. Winners were announced after lunch and prizes delivered to their classrooms.
The spectators were entertained, the racers had fun and the Committee performed beautifully! All that work was definitely worth it.
