New pump track at West Rolleston Primary School

West Rolleston Primary School now has a brand new pump track.

The school, the PTA, volunteers and local donors have jointly funded this ambitious project, born of a wish of the first students of the school in 2016.

At the recent opening, teachers, parents and students gathered to celebrate the event.

With names pulled from hats, a number of lucky students were the first to try out the track, built by specialist pump track builder Cam Bisset.

Headmaster Sylvia Fidow says she hopes everyone gets a chance to use the job.

It will be available to the community after school hours, and she looks forward to everyone using the track respectfully.
