Pedal Prix is a sport that is run on an international scale at a range of levels. In our area, St Joseph School competes with 160 – 250 bikes, all on the track at the same time. These bikes vary in structure and aerodynamics. Entries from primary schools, high schools and universities are accepted.
St Joseph’s School has a dedicated Pedal Prix team. Pedal Prix Coordinator, Prue Boland, has worked tirelessly over many years to ensure the success of the sport at our school. This success is also made possible by the supportive parents of St Joseph’s School who are committed to fundraising and early morning starts.
“What separates St Joseph’s from (other schools) is how inclusive this sport is to the school children, we really do display the school’s motto ‘In all things Kindness’ as every child can participate and to the level of their ability… you can have a go and feel great about yourself because you tried”
