There’s plenty of Bike Rescue action in the pipeline for Term 3 with a total of five BikeRescue Programs and one school workshop.
Last term we started working with Youth Futures at their Anchor Point schools, which offer disengaged 15-19 year olds an alternative to traditional high school. During term 2, we ran BikeRescues at Clarkson, Healthridge and Caversham. For term 3, we'll be running a program out at Anchor Point Ballajura.
This will be the second BikeRescue program we've run at Kelmscott Senior High School, after last term. This term it will be with the same year levels, on the same day at the same time.
Giraween Senior High School applied for an Enrich grant earlier in the year to cover some of the costs of running a BikeRescue program this term at the school. Enrich grants are supported by Aldi and Bernardos Australia and provide grants of up to $5,000 to disadvantaged schools. The idea is to promote healthy living, nutrition, physical well-being and resilience for children and their school communities.
Rotary Club of Western Endeavour have supported the BikeRescue program at Balga Senior High School this term. The club has a formal partnership with the school and is currently in ongoing discussions with Dismantle about potential future programs.
Save the Children and Armadale Shopping City are sponsoring a targeted after school Bike Rescue in Armadale for 12-17 year old indigenous kids. It's being run at the drop in centre on Thursday afternoons and includes an after school bus pick up service.
Ashdale Secondary College
We’ll also be running a workshop day for 30 students at Ashdale Secondary College this term, which is intended to lead into the establishment of an internal bike club at the school.
It's an absolutely packed term, and we're very excited to get started!
