Orelia Primary School is now home to a bike library that enables students to borrow bikes donated by WA Police. The Orelia Bike Library is a partnership between the school, police, Neighbourhood Watch and the City of Kwinana that aims to encourage students to get outside and engage in physical activity. It will provide bikes and scooters held by WA Police that have not been claimed by their owners, and others that have been donated to the library, for use by school students. Mayor Carol Adams said the bike library would increase students’ physical activity and improve emotional wellbeing. “Junior Neighbourhood Watch students at Orelia Primary School will also be actively involved in preparing the bike library and helping school staff register the bikes with Bikelinc,” she said. “The bikes are unclaimed bikes and scooters and parts like bells and baskets from WA Police, and the City is in discussion with West Cycle to help support the expansion of the bike library’s inventory of bikes and scooters. “The Orelia Bike Library is an initiative that not only benefits the current community, but this model could be taken to all schools in WA.” To donate to the bike library, visit bit.ly/3ZZth1e.
