Clunes Public School will receive support for a new student road safety initiative from the annual NRMA Safer Driving School Road Safety Grant program.
NRMA president Wendy Machin said Clunes Public School would receive a $1,000 grant for a comprehensive road and bike safety educational program.
‘The Safety on Two Wheels program will teach students safer riding techniques, road rules for children up to 12 years and vital road awareness skills,’ she said.
‘Many kids ride their bikes to and from school, which is why Clunes Public School is to be commended for focusing on teaching good riding behaviour and safe travel.
‘Initiatives such as this one enhance the safety, confidence and independence of people in the local community and the NRMA is proud to be able to help in a positive and meaningful way.’
