Cycling Club

Bonjour! Madame Vinton has been running a cycling club on Thursday mornings in conjunction with "Your Move", a government body that promotes cycling to schools in WA. At 7.30am each Thursday, an intrepid collection of cyclists have been gathering at the basketball courts to learn some specialist bike skills.  We have been putting these skills to the test whilst cycling around Lake Claremont.

An exciting culmination to this initiative was a group cycling day to visit Sculptures by the Sea on 13 March.  Our cycling group (minus the Year 5's as they had a Leadership event on this day) a staff member from 'Your Move', a representative from 'People on Bikes' and two Scotch staff cycled along the new, safe and comfortable bike path from Claremont to Cottesloe.  We were lucky enough to enjoy the delights of moving on two wheels and the beautiful beach-side exhibition for which WA is famous. We were treated to a 1-hour tour of the artworks and an ice-cold drink under the trees before cycling back to school for the end of the day. The outing was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Cycling Club will run again in Term 4 and we look forward to welcoming more keen cyclists.
