Bike track for kinder stu­dents

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - NEWS -

More than 120 peo­ple re­cently gath­ered to cel­e­brate the of­fi­cial open­ing of a bike track at War­ragul Com­mu­nity Preschool.

The large crowd braved early wet weather to en­joy the open­ing.

Lead­ing Se­nior Con­sta­ble Kevin McLaren to­gether with “Chase” from “Paw Pa­trol” made spe­cial ap­pear­ances and cut the rib­bon to open the bike track.

Sit­ting in a po­lice car, meeting Chase and face paint­ing, to­gether with play­ing in the kinder­garten playground, were high­lights of the morn­ing.

The bike track is a won­der­ful new ad­di­tion to the kinder­garten’s out­door space and has proven a huge hit amongst chil­dren of all six groups since be­ing in­stalled.

The open­ing was no dif­fer­ent as box cars, espe­cially made by the kinder groups, raced around the track.

The bike track works were funded by a va­ri­ety of fundrais­ing ef­forts by the Par­ent Ad­vi­sory Group (PAG) over sev­eral years.

PAG pres­i­dent Abbey Gough made spe­cial men­tion of the teach­ing staff as well as longserv­ing PAG mem­bers Christie Brans­grove and Philippa Rank­ine in mak­ing the bike track a re­al­ity.

She also praised de­signer Prue Met­calfe and Wes McIn­tosh Land­scapes for the works.
