We are delighted to announce that we have secured Bikeability funding until 2020. In this 3 and a half year funding package we have the opportunity to teach the full progressive Bikeability training programme; starting Level 1 in Year 4, Level 2 in Year 5/6 and Level 3 in secondary school. In 2017 we will also be starting a bike recycling programme to ensure that all children have access to a bike, along with running Bikeability fun days and Bikeability promotional events.
Huge thanks to Carterton Community College who have secured the funding from the Youth Sports Trust.
