We are starting a Greenpower Formula Goblin Racing Team at South Park Primary School this year. We have been busy recruiting a team of budding racing drivers and enthusiastic mechanics who will build an electric car to compete against teams from other schools.
Participation in the racing team is only open to our current Year 6 pupils and they will learn how to build and maintain an electric car and then how to drive it.
SUPPORT THE TEAM
Children throughout the rest of the school will be involved in designing the car bodywork, promoting the team in the wider community, and observing the construction and testing of the vehicle at school.
Everyone at South Park will be welcome to attend the official race meetings next year. Bring your families to support the team. It will be a fabulous and exciting day out!
This project does cost money and we are having to cover costs mainly through fundraising and sponsorship.
This is where you can help!
Tesco’s run a scheme where money raised through the Bag for Life scheme gets allocated to community projects. We have been chosen by Tesco’s to receive a grant. The amount we get is decided by their shoppers in our local Tesco shops.
So next time you go to Tesco’s – don’t forget to vote for our South Park electric car racing project before you leave the shop. They will give you a token to use when you pay for your shopping.
Keep your eyes on the school blog to see how our car build is going. You can also watch a video about the Greenpower project on our website in the News section.
