Members of the Penticton RCMP’s Indigenous Policing Services recently joined local Indigenous students for their mountain biking class.
The Outma Sqilx’W Cultural School on the Penticton Indian Band invited the officers to join the PIB students out on the trails. Indigenous youth sport organization Spirit North hosted the class and provided all the bikes, helmets and snacks for the students.
“Outma Sqilx’W Cultural School is grateful for the opportunity to have Spirit North leading the way and officers from the Penticton RCM Indigenous Policing Services joining us on healthy, active, outdoor activities,” said school principal Tony George. “It makes a difference in young people’s lives to have adults spend meaningful time with them.”
Indigenous Policing Services gives full credit to Spirit North for providing all the bikes, helmets and snacks to the students.
“We are honoured to be able to join students in this positive and meaningful program,” said Const. Mike Rampone.
