Nuriootpa High School Pedal Prix is about building, promoting and fostering positive and successful relationships between students in a team focussed sporting environment.
Nuriootpa High School has been involved in and developing their Pedal Prix Program (PPP) for nearly a decade and is now one of the most successful and up-and-coming public school teams in the competition. Students from our school are surpassing all of their personal expectations through training, resilience and determination as well as developing community partnerships and sourcing sponsorships within the greater Barossa Valley area.
Our parent leadership group has also worked closely with our staff and students to further develop the program, source sponsorship and help to transport, maintain and cater for students during the events.
The students organise, repair, ride and develop trikes for race events throughout the year where they compete against trikes from around the country in the Australian International Pedal Prix Super Series. The categories are broken into four major areas with sub categories within;
- Category 1 – Primary Schools
- Category 2 – Junior High School
- Category 3 – Senior High School
- Category 4 – Adult / Open class teams
We, at Nuriootpa High School, race teams in Categories 2 and 3 and are expanding to incorporate Category 4 teams. Within Category 3 we also have an all-girls team who are growing in competitiveness, confidence and strength with each passing event.
Some of our achievements to date include:
