Beware if you’re walking around the campus this term, as the Prep students have been roaming the college on balance bikes! Thanks to our brave Physical Education (PE) teachers, Mr Hendriks and Mr Ware, students in Prep have been learning to ride balance bikes during their PE lessons. These classes are so beneficial and engaging for students that know how to ride a bike and those that are just starting out. Riding a balance bike develops motor skills, increases balance, develops bike awareness and overall confidence on a bike. It also helps with the transition to a regular bike and can eliminate the need for training wheels.
As well as developing bike riding skills, Prep students have been learning about bike safety and road rules. The Preps are having so much fun riding with their friends at school and will be ready for lots of bike riding adventures over the Christmas holidays with their families.
