On 20 October 2021, Baldivis Secondary College was awarded with a Connecting Schools Gold Grant valued at $2,499.00.
Using equipment that is safe and in good working order is essential for successful bicycle excursion. The funding was allocated to the servicing and repairs of the college’s fleet of 24 mountain bikes. The fleet was collected for works on the 16 December by Thorsten Goedick from People on Bicycles.
People on Bicycles provided a comprehensive bicycle safety checks as well as repairs, which included:
• brake and gear adjustments,
• shift/brake cable and pad replacements if required,
• drive-train lube service,
• tyre pressure and tube fixing
All bicycles received a detailed service checklist with repair advice.
The bikes were returned in outstanding condition for our Year 11 Outdoor Education class to participate in an excursion to Marinup Mountain Bike Trail in Holyoake.
We would like to thank Carol- Ann Prinsloo, Alliance Program Office at the Department of Transport, for this fantastic opportunity. It has relieved financial pressure on our budget and provided an important opportunity for our students to continue to safely participate in Mountain Biking, aligned with the Outdoor Education Curriculum.
