Our new Human Powered Vehicle (HPV) program kicks off for 2015
This year Beaconhills College has entered in earnest the exciting world of Human Powered Vehicle (HPV) racing.
Many parents from this region would be familiar with the HPV program, which now has a huge following. For those who don’t know, an HPV is essentially a recumbent bicycle – the ultimate green form of transport – which school teams race in a series of events throughout the year.
I am delighted that the College has one HPV vehicle ready to race, with two more ordered so we can soon expand our fleet.
Our Head of Year 9 at the Pakenham Campus, Graham Broderick, is leading this new multi-campus program and our team of 12 students will race tomorrow (Saturday 28 February) at Casey Fields from 10am to 4pm.
If you have never seen HPVs in action, I suggest you drop by Casey Fields or catch the students on Anzac Day for their second race.
This is an excellent program which encourages fitness, endurance, team work and strategy. And it’s great fun! Graham Broderick is keen for more students to be involved. Contact him on Graham.Broderick@beaconhills.vic.edu.au
I also wish our College House teams from Millett, Creese and Rich a successful night as they take part in the Cardinia Relay For Life this weekend at the Toomuc Reserve, Pakenham. Funds raised will go towards cancer research. This is yet another example of students, staff and College families demonstrating citizenship and service for what is a most worthy cause. I am proud to see so many people from our community taking part.
