More than 25 children in Nursery received bikes from the On Trak team’s ‘Be Safe, Keep Safe’ project.
Our learning Mentors have been working with the project for the last 2 years, teaching children about road safety and giving bikes to children as part of the schools reward scheme.
An article in the November issue of the Asian Express featured Mr Iqbal, Mr Singh and the children collecting their bikes. Mr Iqbal is quoted as saying “Here at Lapage Primary School we believe that pupils should have the opportunity to explore and develop their social skills at an early age. This incentive, with the free bikes, is one of the first to take place in the West Yorkshire area, and for the children it offers them a healthy lifestyle whilst also learning how to enjoy riding outdoors safely.”
