Kids get on their bikes in healthy life­style scheme

Halifax Courier - - Business -

Chil­dren at All Saints’ Ju­nior and In­fant School were full of smiles as they en­joyed a ses­sion on the bikes as part of the school’s “Get Mov­ing” ini­tia­tive. The project has been in­tro­duced to en­cour­age pupils to “get on their bikes” in an at­tempt to keep them ac­tive and de­velop a healthy life­style. Two in­struc­tors from cy­cling profi- ciency or­gan­i­sa­tion Bike­abil­ity were on hand to of­fer guid­ance and sup­port to the chil­dren, some of whom were experiencing their first time on a bike. All Saints’ PE sub­ject leader He­len Hud­son said: “Year five and six have loved it. They’ve asked to have a cy­cle club af­ter school be­cause they’ve en­joyed it so much, so we’re now work- ing with Brooks­bank School to see if we can go there and use their cir­cuit. “With the weather im­prov­ing it’s good for the chil­dren to get on their bikes and keep fit, healthy and ac­tive.” Bike­abil­ity in­struc­tor Suzy Straughan said: “They’re re­ally en­joy­ing it and you can see their con­fi­dence and skills in­creas­ing all the time.”
