Frequently asked questions

  • Do I have to register online or can I complete a hardcopy form?

    All submissions must be received online. If you are having difficulties contact us.

  • How are schools notified that registration for next year is open?

    Schools are notified via an email to the school generic email address and the current nominated Way2Go focus teachers.

  • What happens if we don’t complete our registration before the close off date?

    It will not be processed or considered for a DPTI funded place. You may contact us to request to be placed on the waitlist in case a cancellation occurs during the year. Alternatively, you may enquire directly with a bike education provider about a fee for service arrangement.

  • Do I need to resubmit an application if I need to change some details?

    No. If you need to change or correct any information on your submission just contact us prior to the close off date.

  • Is it possible to book two years in advance?

    No. Available places and a school’s eligibility can change from year to year. Annual processing makes it fairer to all schools.

  • Why is confirmation of dates required before the end of the school year?

    • Schools have time to consider their calendar and plan effectively.
    • Students get the full instruction time without the intrusion of other school events or priorities e.g. camps, swimming, NAPLAN etc.
    • It gives the best opportunity for the intended outcomes of the program to be achieved.
    • Schools are not disadvantaged or inconvenienced from having to wait on another’s response.

    *A catch up session can be negotiated at the initial planning stage if a programmed occasion/event means that school cannot participate in a particular week.

  • Our school principal might not be here next year. Does the current principal still need to authorise our submission to be considered?

    Yes . If your new principal needs information or expresses concern please contact us.

  • Who do I contact if I need help with the application?

    DPTI is responsible for the registration process. Telephone 8343 2459 or email DPTI.Way2Go@sa.gov.au

  • We have year 3/4 composite classes. Can our year 3 students participate?

    Way2Go Bike Ed aims to develop students ability to manage an on-road traffic environment. For this reason only children from year 4 - 7 can participate. If you would like to discuss this further contact us.
