FSO: Wheels

Summer's here, and it's time for windsurfing.

Santa in New Zealand at Christmas at rocket Park organised by Mt Albert baptist Church came in a quad bike, bring his elves in a trailer. I enjoyed teaching my students Kiwiana Christmas. Getting them to compare a traditional Santa and a Kiwi santa.

School kids come to Pt Chevalier School in scooters and skate boards, and It was shocking that there was a ring from a neighbouring school that came and stole our children's scooters.

This is a small company set up by two of our parents, Dave & Helen Morgan, to manufacture and sell racks to allow scooters to be stored upright.
Dave came up with the idea after hearing me moaning about scooters lying in doorways around the school. They have trialled their prototypes here and
donated them to us. After hearing of the thefts, Dave came in last night and installed about six new Scooteracks around the school at no cost. These
are the ones that allow the scooters to be locked in using a bike lock. You can see a photo on their website under
'Scooter What?' in case you want to know how it's done. These models are also prototypes and we are very grateful for their generosity in providing
them to us so promptly. We hope to purchase a number of the final version from them next year.

I've never seen a Santa like that! Really cool.

You won't find any kids going to school in skate scooters!

Wow, that was very generous of them to donate the prototype of the scooter stands. I hope they are very successful in their business. With that being said, I got a little smile on my face when I saw all the santas riding in on a quad and trailor.

It's hard to believe we live in the same country when I consider how different the parking area is at our local school - not a bike or scooter in sight, just buses as all the pupils live in the country. It's such a shame that stands like that are necessary but good on the company that supplies them.

Buying a scooter to your kid can be a great decision since this will get him/her involved in one of the most safe and funny scooters for sale sport.
