Our three sixth classes have been participating in a cycling safety programme over the past few weeks. This programme offers the children an opportunity to learn to cycle in a fun and safe environment. The programme is delivered by qualified Cycling Ireland instructors from the Cycle Safety School. This programme proves invaluable for those taking part providing a great source of exercise and benefits in mobility and independent movement through a lifespan.
The Cycling Safety School bring bikes and helmets, but it is best for children to have their own bikes which can be adjusted to the correct height for the child to facilitate progress. The children do a number of drills following instructions and learn to control the bike while modelling safe behaviour.
