To help celebrate National Youth Week [an annual, week-long celebration of young people (aged 12-25) throughout Australia] we thought we'd chat to a local [Maryborough] school to find out what being involved in the RACV Energy Breakthrough means to them.
Here, Maryborough Education Centre share their final progress report of the year and reflect on a highly enjoyable RACV Energy Breakthrough event. They also say 'farewell' to Doug Marr, a long serving and devoted teacher and team manager.
Human Powered Vehicles at St Margaret's School turns 10 this year. It might seem like they've been part of the field forever. Over that ten years they've won 65 categories, fostered 180 riders and built a groundswell of support from parents and ex-students who have kept the show on the road. Sure, many other schools have been involved for longer (Bairnsdale Primary School and Maryborough Education Centre have actually been to ALL 24 Energy Breakthroughs), but at this important milestone we felt it was worth looking a little closer at the man who has been at the helm, Terry Trevena.
Beginning this weekend the team from Reef Rode RAGE embark on a 3,996km, 10-day mission to pedal their energy efficient vehicle (EEV) from Ballarat to the Great Barrier Reef and Port Douglas. They're also taking on the RACV Energy Breakthrough's sister event in Maryborough, Queensland - the RACQ Technology Challenge on September 13 - 14. Why are they called 'R.A.G.E'? Ride Against Greenhouse Emissions. Last week, RACV Energy Breakthrough reporter Katie Harris, spoke with Team Manager, Tony Davidson, to find out about Reef Rode RAGE and their adventure.
