Each year our Grade 5/6 students take part in the annual 3 Day Bike Hike, riding 130 kilometres over three days and taking in the sights of Bonnie Doon, Alexandra, Yea and Tallarook. Along with students from Nagambie and Seymour, our dedicated crew show great mettle in rising to the challenges each day pose.
This event has been running for several years and is one of the very few events of its kind in Australia; We like to think of the event as our very own Timbertop! In addition to the physical challenges of the ride, students also have to deal with the organisational challenges of putting up tents when they are feeling weary at the end of the day! The ride also provides great social opportunities for our students as they get the chance to connect with students from other schools in our area.
Of course events such as this would not happen without the logistical support provided by our parents. We are very grateful for their fantastic support over the three days - catering for us, acting as back up crew, riding with students and caring for all our needs.
