Students and families rode their bikes and scooters to Gibbs Street Primary School last Wednesday for the grand opening of the school’s bike enclosure.

The school’s P&C raised $50,000 over three years to build it.

“We hope everyone enjoyed their morning and continue to use the bike enclosure for many years to come,” P&C vice president Rachel Howard said.

She said the old structure was overcrowded with bikes as the school had dramatically increased since the original bike rack was built.

Students also won prizes on the day.

Ms Howard thanked the school community for its support.

“Whether it’s dressing your kids up for free dress days, purchasing items from the stalls, or participating in events like a disco or colour fun run,” she said.

“We may always seem like we have yet another event or asking for a donation but it’s all to improve our students primary school years.”
