Another Auckland school snips the ribbon on a brand new track – well done to Tamaki School in Panmure, Auckland!
The school now has a fantastic 500m riding track, a pump track, a fleet of 50 bikes and a helmet for every kid. This was all thanks to generous contributions from Sport Auckland, the ASB Community Trust, the Lion Foundation, Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board and Auckland Transport.
It was great to see the kids tearing round the track at Tamaki, and once again a familiar story has emerged – something we’ve also heard at so many other schools. Principal Rhonda Kelly says that before the programme started only a handful of kids rode their bikes to school, but now they are struggling to find space for their bikes
Thanks to Tamaki School for a great day!
