Saint Augustine's is very pleased to finally have some bike racks for the students who ride to school everyday. In the past the bike shed has been a mess and difficult to get in and out of with bikes having nowhere to be parked neatly. The new bike racks allow all the bikes to be parked orderly and afford safe entry and exit to the bike shed for all those students who ride their bikes to school.
Thank you to the City of Belmont for funding this great facility in our school and…Continue
