Students set for skateboard lessons
ORARA High School is set to be transformed this afternoon into a hive of skateboarding activity.
The World Industries Australian Schools Skateboarding Series hits town today and from 1.15pm skate decks will be flying through the air.
The series, which originated in Victoria in 1999, has now grown to cover the entire east coast and event manager Paul Harvey from Peninsula Events couldn't be happier.
"So many kids look forward to this event primarily due to the fact that it offers them such a unique opportunity to learn more about the art of skateboarding in a fun, entertaining and less intimidating environment," he said.
The day will kick off with the Target Beginners Workshop conducted by skate coach Jamee Cook, followed by the Lunchtime Skate Comp, which features loads of prizes as well as crowd giveaways.
