Bike Education

Bike Education has started well with our People On Bicycle instructors, Fred, Paul and Mike. Students are showing some good skill development and will continue riding on the quadrangle for a number of weeks to build on their skills. Two students who were non-riders are now able to ride! We would like to thank RAC for the grant we have used to reduce the cost of Bike Education for each student.



Interschool Winter Sport

Students have been training during lunch times and have shown improvements in skills to be utilised during our Friday afternoon games.


We had our first Interschool Winter Sport games on Friday 19th May against Kardinya Primary School. All students showed excellent sportsmanship and enjoyed playing. We were lucky to have the sun shining after a predicted downpour and thunderstorms.
