Since May 2012 the Metropolitan Police at Southwark have been providing us with old bicycles for our students to repair.
The project was encouraged by our Schools Liaison Officer, PC Micky Houlahan, and is supervised by PE coordinator Jason.
The bicycles arrive in need of some serious attention and in some cases are beyond repair, in which case they are broken up for spare parts. The students are taught how to fix the bikes and plan a programme of maintenance.
Once the bikes are in good working order they are used by the students for their PE lessons or at break time, taking advantage of having Southwark Park on our doorstep.
