Is your school delivering or thinking about delivering either of the Ride or Walk to School (primary) or It’s Your Move: Safe Cycle (secondary) programs?

Do you feel like you might need some extra support to find your way around a bike?

This bike familiarisation workshop is an opportunity for teachers to have a go and to ask all the dumb questions (except that there are no dumb questions!).

You will also meet teachers from other schools delivering the Safe Cycle programs to share ideas. This session is NOT TQI-accredited but you can claim this session as part of ‘teacher identified’ professional learning with the TQI and as always, it’s completely free!
