What an amazing program this has been. It was fantastic to see the completed bikes on the last day and to see the smiles and the pride on the faces of the boys who participated. I test rode a few bikes and can say that they rode very smoothly and the brakes worked very well.

We finished the program with an afternoon tea, a visit from the Principal, key staff members and the handing out of certificates. Staff and students were delighted with the program. Comments from some of the students included;"it was good", "I learnt how to put on a chain", and "it was gangster".

TSHS was very pleased with the results of the program. We have seen an improvement in the attendance with some students and improved engagement at school.

We even got a FaceBook post!

Thank you so much to Your Move and the Department of Transport for the opportunity to participate in this program.
