Once the bikes were serviced and the marquee set up, the students rode the track as a training run. They returned excited and ready to take on the challenge.
Other schools came from far and wide to participate in the event and it was so wonderful to see our students pushing themselves to their physical limits. Did you know that Mountain Biking is now an elective on offer for our Year 9 and 10 students - very exciting and a wonderful opportunity for Shearwater to expand its Physical Education.
