HPV Maryborough

19/09/2018
Technology Challenge in Maryborough. The challenge involved two teams of 8 students, riding their Human Powered Vehicles , around a track non-stop for 24 hours. Every single student did an incredible job and I was so impressed with the team-work, co-operation and resilience of every single student who participated.
All students did a magnificent job, but I would just like to make a special mention of our year 12 students on the tour who showed incredible leadership and maturity throughout the event. Rueben Vaggs and Sam King showed amazing decision-making and organisation in the pit to keep the bikes on the road throughout the competition. Abbi Gallegos continually ensured riders had water bottles and all of the gear they required, while Skye Burey and Blair Shearwin kept spirits of the team up and ensured everyone had what they needed to keep going. They were remarkable leaders and role-models for the younger students in the team.
A massive thank you to Mr Barry Wastie and Ms Kate Womersley for all of their incredible efforts over the course of the weekend. Mr Wastie organised and co-ordinated the whole trip and event, which was a huge task considering how much is involved in this event, while Ms Womersley joined him to remain in the pit throughout the competition, foregoing sleep Saturday night to ensure the students were safe and supported.
Congratulations to all the students involved – to complete this event is an amazing achievement!
