PTO Spotlight

Chickering PTO Kids Cycling Skills Workshop!  

April 12th 2pm - 4pm at Chickering School Parking Lot.

The PTO is running a Cycling Skill Workshop for our kids to help promote safe cycling and support the PMC bike ride.

This event is a simple and fun activity which will help to teach your child important bike skills. It will consist of a number of stations that  allow your child to learn and practice useful bike handling skills and relevant rules of the road.

The event is open to all children at Chickering who can ride a bike without training wheels, and open to any parents who would like to volunteer to help.

Sign up to Volunteer! It will be great to have you join the team!

The cost of the event is $20 per child, (payable on the day) all of which will be going to the PMC charity (

We are asking grades:

  • K-2 to sign up for the 2-3pm slot
  • 3rd to 5th to sign up for the 3-4pm slot 

Space is limited, so sign up soon to ensure a space.

Your child will need their bike and a helmet. (Your child will not be allowed to participate without a helmet)

Parking for the event will be in the lot by the lower Chickering fields.

For any questions please contact Ruth Townsend ( or Alan Moss.
