Cala donation helps pupils stay safe during cycle sessions
Cults Primary School’s pupils were able to stay safe and seen during a recent Bikeability session, thanks to a donation of high vis jackets from Aberdeen-based housebuilder, Cala Homes.
The school’s primary 6 pupils wore the jackets during the sessions, which aimed to teach the children to confidently ride a bicycle safely and provide them with the skills to lead a more active and healthy lifestyle outside of school.
Emma Gelati, marketing manager at Cala Homes (North), said: “Building communities across the North East of Scotland means more to us than just providing new homes, it’s about supporting the neighbourhoods in which we build too.
“We were pleased to support Cults Primary School’s Bikeability session by donating high vis jackets.
“It’s important the children are easily spotted on their bikes and we hope the school can use them for future sessions too.”
Stephanie Sharp, Depute Head Teacher at Cults Primary School, said: “We are hugely grateful to Cala Homes for this kind donation and appreciate them keeping the safety of our pupils in mind. The Bikeability sessions were a great success and all of the pupils had a really fun time.”
Friarsfield West in Cults is the seventh and final phase of Cala’s Cults masterplan.
