SIR - Hailey Hall School, which is a special school in east Hertfordshire, has been invited to take part in an exciting event held annually in Melbourne, Australia.
This opportunity has arisen because one of our teachers, Mrs Trish Turner, used to teach in the area where the race takes place.
Every year hundreds of Australian schools participate in the competition which involves building and racing a human powered vehicle (a recumbent tricycle) on a circuit.
Ours is the first school in the UK to be invited to participate in this established event.
