Motor Vehicle and Mechanics Club

We’re really excited to launch our Motor Vehicle and Mechanics Club, starting initially for Year 8 students, but based on the success of the first week, will soon be rolling this out to other year groups.

Students also learnt how to change bicycle inner tyres and brake cables and started to learn about the different equipment needed for mechanics and motor vehicle maintenance.

The enthusiasm and engagement of the students was really encouraging, watching them grow in confidence as they started to use their new skills. They’re probably not old enough to remember, but it certainly brings to mind ‘Greased Lightening’…
