Bike to School Week began yesterday, May 27th and – Wendy Teufele, PAC’s Sports and Recreation Committee Chair, has organized lots of great activities for our students.

Additionally, students who ride their bikes everyday this week will receive a bell for their bikes and enter a draw for prizes

A big thank you to the False Creek South Neighbourhood Association for their generous donation for bells and prizes and to Reckless Cycles on 4th and Fir for their generous support and contribution towards our bells and prizes.

Below is an outline of planned activities.

Monday
  • In class presentations on Bike Smarts and Safety.
  • Lunchtime obstacle courses, Intersection safety, turtle races, and more!
  • Be sure kids can access their bikes at lunchtime.
