YR 5 BIKE ED WEEK 2018
Congratulations to the 80+ Year 5 students on the successful completion of their Bike Education Week.
The program involves a mix of practical activities conducted off-road (in the school grounds) and on-road (on local roads) together with classroom activities.
Bike Ed inspires children to develop their bicycle riding skills and their physical capability. Other benefits include enhanced health, fitness and wellbeing, confidence and independence and learning and social development.
The final activity for the week is a ride from school to Gasworks Arts Park, Albert Park. A total of 24kms there and back through local streets and along the coastal bike path to a barbeque lunch.
The children under the guidance of their teachers and parents put into practise their newly acquired knowledge of the ‘road traffic environment’. They negotiate traffic light crossings, roundabouts and busy intersections. No mean feat for a group of over 90 kids!!
Thank you to Elise Weiss for organising the barbeque lunch and to all those parents who participated on the day whether on the ride with the children or at the park helping to prepare lunch.
An activity of this magnitude would not be possible without your help.
A special thank you to Aviva Cohen for her meticulous planning to ensure that this day ran as smoothly as possible!
