Frankston Standard Leader
Bike Ed at Kingsley Park Primary School
Kingsley are proud to be a healthy and active school and we believe beginning a “Bike Education” program at Kingsley Park would be a huge benefit for the health and safety of our children.
The program will help children aged 8 to 12 years develop the skills they need to ride safely and independently on roads and paths.
We would use the grant to purchase 26 bikes and incorporate Primary School Road Safety Education Classes.
The major costs associated with the project are
Purchase of the Bikes for the Bike Education Program
The $1,000 grant will be used
It will pay for 50% of the bikes needed to start the program
How they raise the rest of the funding
I have spoken to the local Kmart and the have said we can received a 5% discount on the cost of the bikes and they will also donate several bikes. That would leave an estimated cost of $1,000 left to raise which would come from our Kingsley Park Fundraising Group who raise money through various school activities.
