RACV Energy Breakthrough Challenge:

Over the past nine years, our students have been involved in the RACV Energy Breakthrough Challenge. This program is run in the Year 5/6 area and involves student assistance in the building of their pushcarts. Teams then race them during our Twilight Pushcart Challenge. The rules also state that the students must gain sponsorship and find ways to fund the program. To this end, our students enlist the help of our generous community and work through various areas of the curriculum to achieve their goal. Literacy, Mathematics, Health & Physical Education, Technology, Humanities and the Arts are all covered in this exciting venture.
