Cycling Workshop!

On Friday the 23rd of September we started our first of five cycling workshops! We first learned how to fit our helmets correctly and went through all safety checks for our bikes. After that we worked in groups where everybody had their own bike. We particularly enjoyed the slow bike race as we had to have great control over our bikes. We also tried sudden stop races and manoeuvring around cones. Some people even learned to ride a bike for the first time!!! Fantastic fun was had by all and we are already looking forward to next week!!!

Health Promoting Mural

In our school hall we unveiled a healthy school mural to mark all of our efforts to be a health promoting school.
