School ri­valry has Tom Price peo­ple in the sad­dle

Pilbara News - - Education - Ali­cia Perera

■ The stakes were raised for WA Bike Week in Tom Price last week when its two pri­mary schools not only took part, but turned it into a com­pe­ti­tion.

Tom Price and North Tom Price pri­mary schools fought for the ti­tle of Bike Week cham­pion, de­ter­mined by the to­tal rid­ers — stu­dents, sib­lings, par­ents, and teach­ers — who rode to school.

North Tom Price Pri­mary School won, but there were high lev­els of par­tic­i­pa­tion in both schools. A to­tal 513 rid­ers took part.

As the run­ners-up, Tom Price Pri­mary School must fly North Tom Price’s school ban­ner and the prin­ci­pal will wear their ri­vals’ school T-shirt at as­sem­bly.
