Bernie Gets On Her Bike

A campaign to get our library assistant to take up a new two-wheeled hobby has been successful.

Principal Dr Andrew Campbell launched the Get Bernie on Her Bike appeal, after the library assistant was allowing her new bike to gather dust.

After a petition in the library gathered 100 signatures, Bernie - who was bought the bike by her husband for her birthday - put foot to the peddle and has been off on her first shaky ride.

She said: "This is the first bike I have owned and so I was not even sure that I could ride a bike.

"The other Sunday I went for my first cycle with my husband, and I was not as bad as I thought, although we did attract a gang of local children, who cycled along with us for encouragement."

As part of the campaign Bernie will now be saddling up and will be doing ten laps of the CBA car park at the start of Term 6.

She is also considering a charity bike ride.
