Our school Champion, Kirsten, has been busy preparing the Connecting Schools grant application. We had just reached Platinum accreditation so there was extra scope. There were a few ideas being floated but the school settled on pursuing the Bike Ed & Bike check-up package. This was seen as one way to build capacity for increased AT participation in the trip to & from school (& hopefully elsewhere!)
The contributing factors for heading this way were that students would be better equipped (& acquainted) with their bikes & better informed on how to maintain those bikes so that the trips to & from school would be safe & enjoyable. Knowing bike "etiquette" & the rules would also enhance their responsibility as safe road users.
Should we be successful, Bike Ed & the Bike Check-ups will be rolled out in Term 4, in readiness for those carefree summer holidays, riding all over the place & having fun!
