2023 INTERSCHOOL MOUNTAIN BIKE COMPETITION
Our SBCC Mountain Bike Club was proud to represent our college at the 2023 Interschool Mountain Bike Competition in Thredbo this March. Over the 3 days our riders battled freezing temperatures, howling winds and mud to race against competitors from 300 schools around NSW and Victoria, 1400 competitors in total.
Our team was comprised of Cameron M, Abbey O, Dylan K and Bailey K and each gave 110% in each event. We faced technical issues, inclement weather, dust and mud but had an absolute blast doing it. It was such a privilege to be able to participate in such a massive event and we look forward to competing again in the 2024 Interschools next year with a larger representation.
If you are a bike rider and don't mind the challenge of riding off road then please see Mr O'Donnell. We'd love to have you on board.
Mrs Browns 10.1 Food Technology students has been enjoying themselves creating some delicious foods. Some of the foods developed were Banana and Cinnamon Toast, Butter Chicken and Rice and Chocolate Souffle.
8SCIR were learning about the digestive system and today they started putting together a stop-motion to display the pathway of food through the body.
