Remote bike ride event Gascoyne Junction

Gascoyne Junction Remote Community School

In conjunction with National Road Safety Week the Shire of Upper Gascoyne hosted a free bike ride event (Amazing Race style) on the 18th November. The Gascoyne Junction School children were invited to participate in the event along with some of the children who live on Stations. The children had to ride to different spots and answer clues, bob for apples, complete puzzles and find sheriff badges in order to move onto the next location. After the bike event the children went back over to the school to complete some bike skills training and analysis and were awarded with certificates. A couple of weeks leading up to the event our Teacher taught road safety awareness and took the children for bike rides in the mornings to learn about road rules as part of their morning fitness.
