Once again, the students at St Joseph’s are excited to be participating in the upcoming Australian International Pedal Prix event at Sturt Reserve.
St Joseph’s have participated in all Pedal Prix events since it has started and have entered two teams this year.
Students will race in the schools newest bikes, The Spirit and St Joseph.
Pedal Prix allows the St Joseph’s team to incorporate all the school values of community, co-operation, respect, kindness, compassion and inclusion.

The greatest thing about Pedal Prix at St Joseph’s is that any child from year five to year seven can be involved, as long as they are prepared to commit to the team.
There are no trials, riders don’t have to be the best at sport and they don’t have to complete a lap in a certain time frame.
Pedal Prix is a wonderful community building activity where parents and riders get to work and interact with people they may not necessarily know.
The riders have formed a great bond, working well together and encouraging each other.
The team has been training and meeting under the guidance of St Joseph’s teacher Prue Boland and three parent team managers, Leigh Brannen, Andrew McDonald and Brendan Ratzmer.
The teams have been training on weekends to prepare themselves for the big race and are excited to represent their school community.
