Bike skills first for pupils

Blairgowrie Advertiser - - NEWS -

Pupils from Bur­rel­ton Pri­mary School have com­pleted level three of the Bike­abil­ity Scot­land cy­cle train­ing pro­gramme – the high­est level in the na­tional cy­cle train­ing pro­gramme – be­com­ing the first pupils in Perth and Kin­ross to do so.

Level three Bike­abil­ity Scot­land builds on the pre­vi­ous two lev­els by giv­ing chil­dren skills in route plan­ning and ne­go­ti­at­ing cy­cle jour­neys on busy roads safely and con­fi­dently.

An­ge­laThom­son, head teacher at Bur­rel­ton Pri­mary School said: “We are in­cred­i­bly proud of our pupils for com­plet­ing the high­est level of the na­tional cy­cling train­ing pro­gramme and I’m sure their par­ents will be as well.

“The chil­dren worked ex­tremely hard through­out the course and de­serve the ti­tle as the first pupils in Perth and Kin­ross to com­plete this level.”
