.. is a sport for the mind. It involves team work and plenty of the one thing that many students love – talking!! BSSC has a proud debating tradition – we have reached the state finals and a number of district finals series.
Debating does involve a significant time commitment, but it is an activity that helps students develops their analytical skills and their ability to ‘think on their feet’. It is a challenge for the very best.
Students volunteer to participate in the pedal prix program which is run during one lunch time and one afternoon each week. The aim is to design a pedal powered vehicle, or modify an existing vehicle, and race it at an annual event where students from approximately 25 other schools will also be competing.
Students learn about bicycle design, maintenance and team work in order to successfully race their vehicle.
