Bikes in Schools

What is this about?

Bikes in schools is a initiative to increase health, fitness, skills, safety, confidence and self-esteem.

During a PB4L hui in 2018 at a school in the Wellington area, one of our staff members noted the track and bikes being actively used. This was met with enthusiasm amongst the rest of the staff members here at Ōtaki School, and the road to making this happen was put in place.

A daily roster of classrooms and their monitors are displayed so tamariki are aware of their times.

Our Bikes in School Committee members are Bex Cowan, Andrea Rosser, Yvonne Tahere and Chris Derbidge.
