Local Schools get Funds to Teach Bike Safety Skills
Two local schools will get cycling safety programs under the Palaszczuk Government’s annual Community Road Safety Grants scheme.
An integrated bike and road safety education course will be delivered to 263 Year 2 & 4 students at North Lake College and 160 Year 2, 4 & 6 students at Christ the King School in Deception Bay.
“These programs will teach kids how road rules for bike users and how to use their bike safely in their local communities,” said Chris Whiting.
“North Lakes State College and Christ the King are educating kids about road safety issues at a grass-roots level.
“Congratulations to these two local school communities who designed a program for their kids and put in an application to make it a reality.
“No one knows their local community better than the people who live there.
“Huge achievements can be realised from small beginnings.
“Conversation about road safety started in childhood will later on saves lives and prevent injury to our next generation of Queensland road users."
“The Palaszczuk Government has boosted Queensland’s targeted road safety budget to $900 million over four years,” said Chris Whiting.
