Coolbinia Students Ride Around Rottnest Island

Last week 62 students from our Yr 6 and 7 classes went to Rottnest Island for a camp.  On Day 2 of the camp we rode all around the Island ... 23 kms!!!  It took all day because we stopped at bays to explore and rest.  We improved our riding skills while having lots of fun.  It was a great day! 

We stayed at Rottnest for a week so we had lots of riding experiences.  This will help us be good models for TravelSmart for the year ahead!
