Mr Breen goes to School

Lindi Harding
St Augustine's School

In March this year our Phys Ed Teacher, Mr Breen, donned his helmet and took on the Teacher Bike Education Accreditation course at Westcycle.

Mr Breen said “The BikeWest PD has prepared me well for handling most situations where I can take the kids. I learned some fun activities that help kids slow down, speed up, control, climb, and descend on their bikes. These activities are particularly beneficial on days like "Ride Your Bike to School Day" and during well-being weeks, where kids can be exposed to safe ways of commuting to and from school. Additionally, I learned how to teach kids to properly check their helmets and perform a basic bike safety check, which enhances their overall riding skills.”

Hi Lindi. High five for Mr Breen. 👋 I bet he enjoyed being a student for a day! It's nice to not be the teacher from time to time. 🙂 Glad to hear he has filled his pockets with new info on bike & road safety and has some new fun activities to keep students interested in bike riding. 25 points have been awarded for attending the AT focussed PD. 🥳🚲
