Human Powered Vehicle (HPV)

Each year, the college sends teams of students to compete in a number of Human Powered Vehicle (HPV) events, both locally and interstate. Students spend seven months training for four key events:

  • Mt Gambier 6 hour sprint event
  • Loxton 6 hour sprint event
  • Bendigo 6 hour sprint event
  • Murray Bridge 24 hour endurance event
  • Marybourgh 24 hour endurance event


HPV teaches participants important life skills, providing opportunities for participants to develop their ability in leadership, teamwork, commitment, personal fitness and health.
