District Athletics 2018

On Friday August 10, seventy one Greenvale Primary School students attended the Meadowglen Athletics Stadium in Epping to compete in the District Athletics Carnival.

In beautiful conditions the Athletics Team competed with great athleticism, spirit and sportsmanship across a range of events including, 100m, 200m, 800m, 1500m, hurdles, relays, long jump, high jump, triple jump, shot put and discus.

Battling against a number of local schools each student was competing to win points for our school and the chance to represent our District at the Divisional competition. It was pleasing to see each member of the Athletics Team striving to achieve their personal best.

As a result of this Greenvale Primary School once again retained the Championship Shield on a total of 132 points, in front of cross town rivals St Carlo on 88 points.

Congratulations to all members of the Greenvale Athletics Team, your excellent results are a credit to your hard work and training. Good luck to those who will continue on to the Divisional Athletics in a few weeks and I hope to see you all back on the track again soon.

On Tuesday July 31st our Foundation students of 2018 celebrated their 100 days of school. The day was full of happiness and great excitement. During this time we have seen our students flourish, developing into respectful and resilient members of Greenvale Primary School.

The students were all asked to bring along 100 items, which they counted, recorded and wrote about. We had a variety of items brought such as 100 straws, 100 smarties, 100 marshmallows, 100 stickers, 100 shopkins just to name a few…

The Foundation Teachers, Mrs Pucar, Mrs Dodd, Ms Hoffman, Miss Franz, Miss Dickson and Miss Maher are so proud of every single one of their students. We all had a wonderful time celebrating the successes and developments that our fabulous Foundation students have achieved so far this year.

Descriptive Writing

Starry Starry Night

The strong breeze touches me with a tingle from the sky of beauty. The swirls of clouds in the night sky are an illusion. Waves of the hills slowly sweep away the black swirly skies. I hear rustling leaves on a tree while owls hoot the dark night away. I wander aimlessly through the quiet, eerie and deserted streets feeling invisible to the world.

100 Days of Year 1

In Mathematics the Year 1 students have been busy counting the number of school days. They found counting patterns and have used classroom number lines, tens frames, a 100s chart, as well as unifix and bundles and sticks to represent tens and ones.

On Friday the 27th of July, the Year 1s celebrated their 100th day of school. Each child brought in 100 items of their choice. This may have included household objects, lollies or toys. Students used their knowledge of an efficient method of skip counting such as by 2s, 5s, or 10s to determine whether they did indeed bring 100 items. They then wrote about the number 100 and participated in games and craft activities to acknowledge being 100 days smarter.

Below are some photos of the festivities and fun.

Divisional Soccer 2018

On Friday July 27th, the Greenvale Primary School soccer team attended the Hume City FC to compete in the Divisional Soccer Competition.

The girls played three round robin matches, losing their first game against Our Ladys Mt Carmel 1 – 0.
After composing themselves the girls went on to win their next two matches, 1 – o, against Mt Ridely College and Gladstone Park PS.
This set the team up for a grand final playoff against Mt Ridley College.
Despite being in control for most of the match, the girls were unable to capitalize on their opportunities and let one goal slip, losing the final 1 – 0.

Well done to all of these girls in the Greenvale Soccer Team. Your leadership, development and team spirit has been a pleasure to watch grow throughout the season. You should all be extremely proud of your achievements.

Thank you to the parents who came along to support on the day, and the team for working so hard.
