In School Cycle Ed set to commence

Carl Beck
City of Albany

Thanks to funding from RAC and after overcoming difficulties in recruiting appropriately qualified coaches the City of Albany's in school cycle education program is set to commence on 1st March 2018.

The first day of lessons will be held at Lockyer Primary School (a Your Move School) with students in years 4-6 offered the opportunity to participate in the sessions based on the Your Move - Bike Education- The absolute basics module.

Once the program is in full swing a different school will be participating each Thursday with approximately 10 schools to be engage in Terms 1-2. For schools that have difficulty in squeezing the sessions in to the busy school days the City is currently investigating options to provide sessions for their students on a weekend day.

As well as the qualified coach trainees currently hosted at the Albany Leisure and Aquatic Centre will also be assisting both to assist with implementing the program but also to develop their skills and knowledge in this are prior to them undertaking an MTBA Level 0 coaching course later in the year.

Hi, Great story. City of Albany and RAC have done a great thing for the local schools. We would also love to hear more about workplace initiatives within your workplace. We hope to hear from Lockyer Primary School and all the other schools about their experience when they have had their first session too. Thank you
