Rooms 8 & 9 complete Pedal Ready!

Date: December 6, 2015 Author: Tony Bates Categories: Room 8, Room 9, Senior Syndicate

As the current advertising slogan says, “we all love our kids, so lets get them exercising more than their thumbs!” As part of Paparangi School’s commitment to Education Outside the Classroom, on Thursday 26 November, all the kids of Rooms 8 and 9 took part in the Pedal Ready programme. The programme teaches children important cycle skills that are compliant with the New Zealand Transport Agency’s cycle skills guidelines.

We know that there are many benefits to learning to ride a bike. By participating in the Pedal Ready programme our students improved their motor skills, learnt important road safety skills, continue to develop their independence and consideration for others and most importantly they had fun!
