Massive news in the world of HPV means that we will need a new name for the program at JPPS. It does NOT change our commitment to running the program and ensuring the kids have the greatest experience of their lives!!! 🙂
After 26 years, the RACV has decided to withdraw from the Energy Breakthrough. The Energy Breakthrough will continue in 2018 and beyond.
Term 2 has begun, and so has the preparations to this years’ challenge.
- Team fitness training will begin next Tuesday (24 April) in the Gym at lunch time. Students should wear a change of clothes and bring a drink bottle with them.
- Log book checks will be conducted regularly throughout the term and the written test will be held next Friday ( 27 April).
- We are also planning on having some before school testing days, where the students can come and have a go in the different vehicles. Stay tuned to when this will happen.
- Soon, the students will be receiving some weekly homework tasks relating to the program.
Keep an eye on the calendar for updates on what is happening this term.
The handbooks contain vital information every student should know. The following is a guide as to some of the most important information from the handbooks.
Information to focus on includes
- Dates of the challenge
- The aims of the program
- Safety features of your vehicle
- Safety features of the rider/pusher
- Classes our teams will be entered in
- RACV Program Sponsors
- Explaining the different areas of the program
- Maximum and minimum riders
- Percentage breakdown of scores
- Vehicle handling and training
- Race durations
The first written test will happen in the first couple of weeks of Term 2.
To All 2018 Students,
Our next RACV meeting will be at recess tomorrow (Tuesday 27th). We will discuss fitness results so far, holiday training, Log Book check and the RACV Handbooks. Meeting will be held in Mr Jenkins room.
A back up Beep test will take place on Wednesday lunch time. If you missed the first one you will be expected to participate OR if you would like to have another go for extra fitness you are also welcome to attend.
Also on Wednesday we will do a 2nd log book check. Make sure your log books are in teh tub on Mr Jenkins desk by close of day Wednesday
The 2018 RACV Handbooks are available to view and download. We will have written tests early next term based on the information in these handbooks. These are another important part of the selection process and the information in these handbooks forms the basis of the presentations and scrutineering that takes place at Maryborough. Download them onto your iPad as you may want to start reading them during silent reading time and reading at home.
There are 3 handbooks:
RACV PartA Handbook is for everyone
RACV PartB_HPV is for those trying our for HPV
RACV-PartB_Pushcarts is for those trying our for Pushcarts
We will have a meeting in the next week to give you more details and some hints about some important aspects and for another Log Book check before the holidays. Details to come!!
Dont forget that we have the Beep Test at lunch time tomorrow (Tuesday 6 March) for all RACV participants.
1:45pm in the gym.
You can have a change of clothes and if so, make sure you are changed and ready to go by 1:45.
You may want to hold off on eating all of your lunch until after the beep test is finished!!!!
ALSO, please note that we have postponed the 30 minute run until Thursday 15 March (as per Mr Zach’s previous post!!) due to school photos this Thursday and next Tuesday morning being the first day after the long weekend.
Just a note we have had to change the date for the 30 minute run to Thursday 15 March.
The run will begin at 8:00 am sharp, so students should arrive before that to ensure they warm up correctly.
The run will be conducted on the school oval.
The Sponsors pack has been updated with information about sponsorship packages for JPPSRacing. It can be found on the sponsors page or by clicking on the link below
