Bike Rack Connecting Schools Grant!

Joanna Webster
Lake Gwelup Primary School

While the Transport Troopers have been keeping the fun events happening at LGPS, our champions and school admin have been hard at work preparing for our Platinum Connecting Schools Grant.

We are SO grateful to be getting 10 new bike racks installed, to the value of over $8000!

These are much needed for our school, as our current bike racks have been overflowing, particularly in the senior area:

We have been on the look out for a bike rack grant, so when we saw this one pop up we had to take it!

Our Champions have kicked off the grant with a Teams meeting with the Department of Transport. It is always great to touch base with DoT and YourMove to bounce ideas around and for our new leader, Mr Drayton, to see what the program is about.

We have had to send in site plans to get the grant kicked off, and sign a lot of important paperwork to make sure we are holding up our end of the deal. We also needed to top up our grant with some YourMove points and some extra $$$ from the P&C to get it exactly how we want it, but it is all happening!

We can’t wait for them to arrive! Thanks again, Your Move!
