Good Wheel - St Joseph's Schools Program

Another month, another round of the Good Wheel Project, our partnership with Good Cycles, supported by the City of Melbourne. In November 2014 we piloted a new version of the program that worked with a group of students from the St Joseph's Flexible Learning Centre in North Melbourne.

The students participated in a 5 session program, focused on teaching bike maintenance, road rules and city riding experience. We are pleased that all 11 students graduated from the course - top marks for all! 

Aspects of the program were integrated into the student's VCAL accreditation, making it a truly meaningful (and fun!) program for these students. 

We will conduct another round of the program in February 2015, all thanks to the City of Melbourne and with support from Nutcase Helmets, Knog and The Huddle Learning and Life Centre. Great work everyone!
