Bike Education

In Grades 4, 5 and 6 the children all take part in our bike education program. This teaches children important road safety rules and improves their cycling skills and control of their bike. The Grade 4’s practise skills such as paired riding, signalling and scanning in the school grounds and also learn road safety rules in the classroom. The program progresses in Grade 5 when the children practise their skills on minor roads and bike paths. Finally when the children reach Grade 6 they finish the bike education program by spending the day out on their bikes in our surrounding areas, demonstrating the road safety and cycling skills they have learnt on actual roads and bike paths, and celebrate with a picnic on the beach!
