I have just been up to Saltoun Primary School to drop off a fleet of bikes. It would appear that all teaching and learning at the moment is focussed around cycling. Wandering through the school there were huge(room sized) pieces of paper with coloured tyre tracks all over them – lots of creative fun had by P1/2. Old bikes were being dropped off at the school ready for the ‘Decorate a Bike’ competition. Many of these bikes will be displayed on school railings ready for the ToB coming right past the school on Wednesday morning.
The bikes that have been dropped off will be used for an off road cycling challenge on Monday.
Parents and other locals are putting a hay bale display together in the field next to the school.
All in all a fantastic whole school/community response to the ToB coming to East Lothian.
