We ran the last session of our pilot program with the kids at After School Care at Bourke Street Public School – in Surry Hills on Tuesday, 20th March.
What a superb session! We had 20 enthusiastic children, mostly from Year 1, eager to learn some new scooter skills. As a large percentage of children from Bourke Street Public School already scoot and ride to school, we focused on important road safety messages such as stopping a safe distance before intersections and driveways, and we practiced a lot of braking!
Thanks to Catherine and all the kids at Bourke Street – we really enjoyed teaching you and were impressed by how many of the ‘golden scooter safety rules’ you were able to recount at the end!
So now we’re ready to implement this program into schools, starting off in the City of Sydney region. If your school is interested, please contact us for more information.
