Students give back to bike track
A GROUP of teenagers from Trinity Bay High School’s Clontarf program recently spent some time helping clear up the Atherton Forest Mountain Bike Park so local mountain bikers can continue to enjoy safe and scenic rides.
The group of grade 9 boys took the time out of their Clontarf Foundation camp to give back to the mountain biking community of Atherton by spending a few hours grooming two of the most popular trails.
The trails are usually maintained by volunteers from the Atherton based bike club Tableland Cycle Sports Inc in partnership with Queensland Parks and Wildlife Services.
The Clontarf Foundation has 139 Academies operating across Australia and helps young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men by supporting them to attend school, finish grade 12 and enter employment.
The program enhances self-esteem and confidence which assists students to participate in education, employment and society in a positive way.
Tablelands Cycle Sports Inc appreciates the help and passion from the group of boys.
