Rain or shine you will see children riding around the scooter and bike track. The bike and scooter track are places where you can burn off your energy and have lots of fun.
Why did the school build the tracks?
Mr Hughs came up with the idea of the bike track to start with. Then the school and the staff wanted to make sure the children had lots to do during morning tea and lunch. So the scooter track was built too.
Scooters are very popular at our school. The staff also thought the tracks would help with the children’s fitness and be good for the community to use everyday too.
Who built the track?
Parent and whanau volunteers built the tracks, and local businesses in our community gave us good deals with pouring the concrete for the scooter track and also metal for the bike track. They also helped with designing it and the children got to help too. This means everyone had a say in how it looked and what was built.
Why we like the tracks
The tracks are pretty amazing because they have different skill levels for the jumps and ramps. We also enjoy playing together on the tracks and testing our skills. We can use them in the holidays too.
