Stu­dents pick up new tricks

Kalgoorlie Miner - - CLASS ACT -

The rules were bent at Han­nans Pri­mary School last week, with skate­board­ing al­lowed for just a few hours dur­ing a visit from Skate­board­ing WA.

Stu­dents were treated to hand­son lessons by pro­fes­sional skaters and coaches dur­ing the Learn to Skate clinic on Tues­day.

Be­gin­ners were taken through the ba­sics such as stand­ing, bal­anc­ing and rolling on the board, while oth­ers learnt how to Ol­lie, pivot and do other tricks.

Deputy prin­ci­pal Amanda Higgins said the group had vis­ited last year and made a great im­pres­sion, prompt­ing the school to open its gates to skate­boards once again.

“It is a great way for them to get ac­tive, learn a new skill and see if they like it,” she said.

“We would def­i­nitely look at hav­ing them come back again.”
