Thanks to NZCT for new mountain bikes

Thanks to the generosity of the New Zealand Community Trust the students of Community College North Canterbury will soon be cycling the local tracks on a new set of mountain bikes.

A recent contribution of $8,000 from NZCT is instrumental in helping the College purchase much needed new mountain bikes.  Purpose built riverside and beach forest mountain bike tracks close to the College’s location in Rangiora will now add a new dimension to introducing students in a team environment to the outdoors, teaching them new skills and building their fitness in a fun way.

“Our College is based in such a fantastic location to take advantage of the mountain bike tracks in close proximity to Rangiora,” says Kate O’Connor, manager Community College North Canterbury. “We believe in the benefits of adventure based learning to build confidence and self-responsibility, so we’re really excited that our students now have the opportunity to experience mountain biking as part of their courses.”
