Year 5 Bike Education Program
WAY2GOBICYCLE SAFETY CHECK
This is a great opportunity for your child’s bike to have a free roadworthiness check by either RAA or Bike SA.
Before the first practical session a safety check of the bicycles of participating students will be checked so that:
•safe bicycles are available from the very start and students have more practical riding time
•families receive information about the roadworthiness of their child’s bike
•the 15 bicycles available for borrowing are allocated to students who don’t own or have access to a bicycle
What you need to do
Make arrangements to bring your child’s bike to school at 7:45am on Monday the 30th October2017.
Leave the bike by the Middle Yard Basketball Courts.
Please note: This is a once only service as patrols and instructors are scheduled elsewhere and cannot return at a later date.
Students who are using their own bike will receive a completed bike safety check card recording the assessment of its roadworthiness.
Read the assessment information on the card and take any necessary action as recommended below.
