Getting to know the vehicles

We are going to be offering ‘Getting to know the vehicle’ sessions before school on a Thursday each week. These sessions will run from 8:00 am – 8:30 am.
These sessions are not compulsory. The students will have the opportunity to try each of the vehicles and learn some of the features and how they work.
Students will need to bring their helmets to these sessions if they wish to have a ride around the oval.

Term 2 Begins

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.

Bendigo Event Homework

Bendigo came and went and now the hard work really starts. Not only do the kids now have a much greater understanding of racing, hopefully some of them have had their crashes and come out the other side unscathed.

 

This weeks task is to write a ‘Newspaper’ style report/recount of the Bendigo event, This can be based on your own experience and ride or a report of the event from a Jells Park perspective or of the event in general.

You need to submit this written task on the wiki titled 2017 Bendigo Race Report

Then click on the ‘Discussion’ tab. The title is your name and then type your report.

HPV Homework

With our first race less than 2 weeks away, we are making the final changes to our vehicles. Many other black vehicles will be on the track so we wish to personalise our two so we can recognise them when we fly down the home straight.

By Monday next week, each team member is to create a sticker design for the front of their teams vehicle.

I will be getting some Blue, Red, Yellow, White and Black sticker material that can be used.

Students can create any design, as long as we can cut it out and they use the above colours.

Designs may include:

Diagonal lines of varying widths, Circles, waves etc.

Designs need to be handed in by next Monday 14/8 so we can decide on which one to use.
