THERE was two-wheeled mayhem at Bletchley Park Primary School as students took part in the school’s Ride to School Day.
Students rolled in to school on their bicycles, tricycles and scooters, to promote the importance of cycling and exercise as part of the state’s Bike Week.
The highlight of the day was the school’s bike parade, which allowed students to show off their decorated helmets and colourful rides to their classmates.
Gosnells Police also attended the school to pose for pictures with kids and teach them the importance of bike safety, while the school’s mascot Ted was there to deal out high fives to safe riders and eager cyclists.
Teacher and event organiser Lia Long said the day had as much of an emphasis on safety as it did on being active.
“We are trying to emphasise the importance to students of wearing their helmet when they ride to school – even if they are on the footpath or grass,” she said.
