Bikes at East Tāmaki School

Our bike programme focuses on developing healthy active ākonga, by learning how to effectively ride a bike, while doing it in a safe environment in the school grounds.
Biking is important as it encourages healthy active play during playtime and learning times. It develops our ākonga into fit and active learners.
Bikes are made available to students during lunchtimes for them to enjoy on the Warriors built bike track. Kaiako are also able to implement the bikes into their fitness lessons and assist in creating safe and responsible ākonga out in their community on bikes.
We encourage Whanau to bring their own bikes down to school during lunchtimes and share in the bike riding learning with their tamariki.
