Sad­dle up for stu­dents

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

IT IS time to pump up the tyres and pol­ish the safety hel­met to test your skills and en­durance for the Ju­lat­ten bike rally.

The Ju­lat­ten State School Par­ents and Cit­i­zens com­mit­tee has or­gan­ised the char­ity ride to raise money for the school on Sun­day.

Or­gan­iser Wendy Cam­bage en­cour­aged stu­dents from other schools and their fam­i­lies to join in on the fundrais­ing bike ride.

“It’s not a race, it’s just a ride and is open to any­one,” she said.

Ev­ery child that en­ters gets a num­ber on their arm which goes into a draw to win a Mon­goose moun­tain bike worth $300.

There will also be prizes for the best dec­o­rated bikes and the most brightly colour cloth­ing to pro­mote bike safety.

The rally has three dif­fer­ent start­ing points, de­pend­ing on age.

Grades 5-7 start near Nine Mile Store and ride the whole of Eu­luma Creek Rd, which is nearly 11km. Grades 2-4 will ride from near Pin­na­cle Rd and the kindy, preps and Grade 1 stu­dents will ride from Ras­mussen Rd, which is nearly 6km.

All money raised will go to­wards P and C projects to buy iPads for ev­ery class and also to im­prove the school’s play­ground equip­ment.

Af­ter the ride, which is ex­pected to fin­ish around 1pm, there will be a bar­be­cue and fruit avail­able and a wa­ter­slide on the oval to cool off.

For more in­for­ma­tion on the ride and to reg­is­ter, con­tact P and C com­mit­tee mem­bers Wendy on 4094 1494 or Monique on 4094 1751.
