Gralee School's new bike track open for business

GRALEE has a fine new facility to its name and it’s one everyone can use.

As part of Education Week activities the school opened a new bike track, which winds it way around the grounds, as well as unveiling a new flag pole. 

The bike track was able to be made possible with the help of Leeton shire businesses and helpers, as well as the school’s P&C. 

“The kids all love it,” Gralee principal Peter Hingston said. 

“It's a great addition to our school. 

“We’re really thankful to everyone that was involved.”

Parents and community members were part of the opening, taking the opportunity to celebrate the opportunities Gralee provides for its students.

The school’s P&C has also been busy of late running a Krispy Kreme fundraiser.

Donuts by the dozen will make their way to the school in what is a similar fundraiser to a pie drive. 

A certain amount of profits will then make their way back to Gralee to help with sending students to this year’s Schools Spectacular in Sydney.

“Our dance group has been selected to take part,” Mr Hingston said. 

“They’ve been very busy rehearsing for that, as well as the Leeton Eisteddfod.

“It’s exciting to be able to go to the Schools Spectacular, so we want to thank everyone that has supported that fundraiser.” The school plans to hold a small schools event at Gralee on October 20 for a “sensory fun run”.
