Lighthouse Youth BMX program

Last term a group of REC students successfully completed the Lighthouse Youth BMX Program, aimed to increase engagement and connection in school.

Highlights from the program included:

  • students stepping out of their comfort zones and trying something new
  • learning new skills and building confidence
  • improving communication skills with peers, teachers and mentors
  • building new jumps at Tangari BMX track
  • students showing initiative to carry out maintenance on the jump lines.

We are proud of how well this group engaged with the program, showing respect to all teachers and mentors, which has developed connections within school and the wider community.
