Primary 2 pupil Tang Xiang Rong (centre), eight, is one of 21 pupils from Holy Innocents' Primary School taking part in the two-day Singapore Cycle Safe programme, launched yesterday. It also aims to combat childhood obesity. To make the learning fun, the children were given helmets shaped like animals. The Singapore Cycling Federation, the organiser, hopes to certify 2,000 students this year under the programme, the first local amateur cycling accreditation scheme for students. It is endorsed as a Sports Education Programme by Sport Singapore and the Ministry of Education.
