A buzz at Greenvale Primary

On Tuesday the 22nd of November, as part of their Economics unit the Year 5 and Year 6 listened to the inspiring, brave and mesmerising Koky Saly.

How he started his business/ Charity which is BeeKeeper Parade, he got this inspiration when his sister passed away and he always knew that his sister was still dreaming about making this successful charit.  He was the presenter we have had this year!

Year 5 Camp Reflection

YEAR 5 CAMP By Nicholas Fruci, 5AB

Hello! On the 4th to the 7th of October, the Grade 5s went to camp at Philip Island Adventure Resort. The activities were archery, GIANT swing, twin flying fox, canoeing, low ropes, ponding, swimming and pancake cooking. We also had a disco, night walk, movie and a quiz. Some of the meals were baked spuds, burgers, chicken wraps, schnitzel, fish n chips, pasta and more.

Each cabin had 4-5 people with bunk eds and a double. The funniest part of camp was people screaming on the GIANT swing going AHHHHHHHHHH that was funny and the people screaming AHHH on the night walk ha ha.
