Currambine Primary Students were recently given the opportunity to participate in a Cycle Safe Education Program. Mrs Brooks the Physical Education Specialist who is qualified with Aus Cycle as a Cycling Instructor delivered an intensive program where students were taught a range of skills and participated in a number of activities.
The students learnt how to make sure their bikes were safe for riding and they were taught how to fit their helmets correctly. On the bike the students practiced riding one handed, the use of hand signals to communicate, how to scan when riding and also the correct way to safely brake. Students practiced riding close to others and participated in games such as follow the leader and relays.
By undertaking the program the students now feel more comfortable with riding to school and this will result in more students choosing an active travel alternative.
