Bicycle safety put to test at Bunyip
Children at Bunyip Primary School tested their bicycle safety skills with an intense four-day program recently.
Students in grades three and four ran a bike safety check on Monday, before taking part in a rotation of activities across the next three days.
The program, which is held once every two years for grade three/four students, teaches children about bike and road safety, as well as develops their riding skills.
Skills taught include riding in a straight line, safe and controlled braking, slow riding, partner riding, weaving, u-turns and spacial awareness of others around them.
The school run a more intense program for its grade five and six students annually, which includes an on-road component and on-road test.
