A BRAND new set of bicycles has been donated to Aldercourt Primary School in Frankston North.
The donations were made by children’s charity Variety. It donated 22 new bikes, 30 helmets, and 22 combination locks in partnership with Kone Elevators to the school.
Variety has been running its “bikes for kids” program for 21 years. It has donated nearly 13,000 bikes in that time.
Aldercourt Primary School PE teacher Paul Dadds said the new bikes will “provide our students with more opportunity to engage with the bike ed program that we already run. We currently don’t have enough bikes and helmets to go around, so students lose time on bikes each lesson to swapping out equipment.”
“We have students currently that can’t ride a bike. With more bikes available in our program in a range of sizes and more time to teach skills, we will hopefully reach these children,” Dadds said.
