Local school celebrates National Ride2School Day
Federal Member for Aston, Mr Alan Tudge MP, supported National Ride2School Day today by taking part in activities at Scoresby Primary School.
Along with many schools in the Knox community, Scoresby Primary School actively encouraged students to ride their bike or scooter to school to mark the day.
Mr Tudge assisted PE Teacher, Aaron Palmer, and the Grade 5 and 6 classes in a bicycle maintenance session. Students went through their maintenance checklists to ensure that their bikes were up to scratch, including tyre pressure, spoke and chain tension, a break performance.
Mr Tudge said that it was great that so many schools in the community were participating in Ride2School Day.
“It is terrific to see so many kids ride their bike or scooter to school on this day, and hopefully on many days throughout the year. It is not practical for everyone, but for those who live near to their school, it is a great way of getting some exercise each day.
“I would love to see more kids ride to school, if it is practical for them to do so.”
“Bike maintenance is also important, as the Scoresby Primary School children were learning today.”
“I hope the National Ride2School Day continues to grow each year in our local community as well as nationally.”
