Pedal Prix

Our students and staff have been involved in the Pedal Prix for more than 10 years.

Up to 24 students - both boys and girls - work on the Xavier College entry in teams during the year, building the vehicle, fundraising and building a real sense of community and teamwork.

Our students learn a range of skills, including:

  • Teamwork, as they support each other at training and competitions
  • Persistence
  • Fitness
  • Understanding mechanics of the vehicles in terms of gearing and steering

In 2011, our team was the most successful senior SA team and second overall in the HPV Super Series (culmination of 2 six hour events and the 24 hour event).  Congratulations to the team and thanks to those many local businesses who sponsored and supported them.
