Children master bikes

GRADE 3 and 4 students at St Laurence’s Primary School in Leongatha have been developing their bike riding skills at school before heading out onto the roads.

“We have found that increasing numbers of children either are not confident riders or are not highly skilled at riding bikes,” principal Kate Dourley said.

“Therefore before taking them out onto the road for formal bike ed, we are doing an introductory skill session.”

Students participate in bike education in grades 3, 4, 5 and 6.

In Grade 5, they finish the year with a ride to Koonwarra and in Grade 6, their final school event is a ride to Inverloch.

Bike practice: St Laurence’s Primary School students Indie and Patrick have been working on their riding skills at the Leongatha school.
