New Trikes for Support Unit

The school’s Support Unit has just picked up two brand new adult trikes from Stuart and Marika at Cycliste in Moss Vale. These trikes will supplement the 10 other two-wheeler bikes we already own and use on a regular basis. These new trikes are purpose built for adults and have three wheels in all. The two at the back provide much greater stability to the rider. Our experience has shown that students who have been unable to ride a standard bike have a far greater chance of learning to ride these trikes.

Head of the Support Unit, Mr Tim Vandevoort (seen below trying out the smaller red trike) commented: “we are very grateful to the Kollege of Knowledge Kommittee for Kids for their ongoing and substantial financial partnership with our Support Unit. These bikes retail for approx. $1000 each and the 4Ks have met this bill in total for us. We are also grateful to the team at Cycliste in Moss Vale.”

A representative from the Kollege of Knowledge Kommittee for Kids, Mr Tom Porter (seen below in the main street of Moss Vale handing over the larger blue trike to one of the Support Unit teachers) commented: “It’s a great cause and we are only too happy to be involved.”
