In 2016, TRACTION participants serviced special purpose bicycles for students of the Redland District Special School. It gave TRACTION participants to chance to give back to the community and help others. Read story.
We're stoked that the first students from the school have now joined TRACTION as participants in the Bicycle Build program at the Capalaba workshop. In a partnership with Cleveland District State High School, students from Redlands Special School will participate alongside students from Cleveland High as peers.
All students from Redlands Special School face the challenge of intellectual disability and many also experience physical disabilities. It is fantastic that students from Cleveland State High have embraced their new team mates as part of TRACTION.
The first students to participate are Travis and Jessy. Principal Andrew accompanies them one day a week when they spend time 'on the tool's in the TRACTION workshop.
