With our new instructor Richard Thomas on board, we ran one of our final pilot sessions at Crown Street Public School in Surry Hills on Monday, 19th March.
We had over 20 children from After School Care participate in the Scooter Safety Program. They were taught many practical scooter skills, like turning, braking and safely jumping off their scooters. We also talked about the hazards of riding in the rain, which was timely as it started to rain straight after that and we had to move undercover to complete our training.
Well done Richard and thanks to all the Crown Street kids for scooting safely and listening so well! Everyone came through with flying colours. A great time was had by all & most importantly some important lessons were learned to help you travel safely on your journey to school.
One of our local papers, The Wentworth Courier was there to photograph the last part of the session, and you can see by the photos how much fun the kids had!
It’s a big week for scooter riding and active travel, as this Friday March 23rd is National Ride2School Day! Expect to see lots of kids on wheels!
A final note: we were impressed by the new scooter and bike racks installed at Crown Street Public School thanks to the City of Sydney. Great to see local councils supporting kids who scoot and ride to school.
