Editor’s Note: Last week our Year 4 students, staff and parent helpers climbed onto their bikes and set off for Bike Camp. Their overnight stay was an exciting first for many students who were very active, on and off their bikes, for the duration of the camp. Thank you to Nicholas T. from T3 for writing as a journalist for our school blog, to let us share what Bike Camp meant for a Year 4 student.Busy Bike Camp for our Year Fours! 1On the seventh of March the Year Fours had their bike camp.
