Dromana College cycling academy has had to find new and creative ways to make learning remotely fun and different whilst staying 5km around home.
We have been doing skill based activities, such as the ‘Treasure Hunt’, where we had to take a photo of ourselves in different locations.
Some of the challenges included near your local shop, over a built trail feature, beside a stop sign and even riding near an animal.
As Cycling coaches we would like the treasure hunt to be a way for everyone to participate and have a ride whilst searching for different objects.
You will see in the picture that we were tasked to take a photo of us going down stairs.

During remote learning it is even more important to stay physically active, not only for our physical health and wellbeing but also our mental health and wellbeing. To promote the importance of being active, our HPE team decided to run year level challenges for the students.
DISTANCE CHALLENGE Senior Students vs Staff
The Challenge was to see who could travel furthest in a week. Our Senior Students (Yrs 10-12) or Staff. Individuals could walk, ride or run. It was tight competition with 21 students and 22 staff competing. Thank you to Joel Fraser (HPE student leader) for collating.
