Tabloid Sports 2017

On Friday December 8th all staff and students in Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2 participated in Greenvale Primary Schools Tabloid Sports.

This fun filled morning was spent out in the school grounds and across the Bradford Oval as students participated in a range of active events focusing on participation, sportsmanship and school spirit.

The events consisted of 50m sprints, bean bag balance relays, parachute games and tunnel ball races. The students looked amazing in their house colours and our House Captains did an amazing job of running the activities.

Thank yous to the parents who volunteered their time to assist and spectate on the day, the captains for (once again) stepping up in their leadership role and the teachers for working tirelessly.

Billy Slater Shield 2017

On Tuesday November 14th, thirty-one Greenvale Primary School students attended the Lakeside Reserve in Roxburgh Park to compete in the District Billy Slater Shield.

In hot and windy conditions, the Greenvale PS students competed with great effort and sportsmanship. We entered three teams, one in the Year 6 Boys Tackle competition, one in the Year 5/6 Girls Tackle competition and one in the Year 5/6 Girls Tag competition.

The Boys team had a mix of results, including wins, losses and draws, playing against Mt Ridley College, Wallan PS, Our Ladys PS and Plenty Parklands PS. The boys unfortunately missed out on the final but still had a great time and learnt a lot about the game.

The Girls Tackle team had a wins and losses playing against Our Ladys PS and Wallan PS, ultimately finishing runners up. They continued to show great spirit and also learnt a lot about the game.

The Girls Tackle team competed against Mt Ridley College and Plenty Parklands PS, finishing in first place as the District Girls Tag champions. Greenvale will now go onto compete at the State Finals in the 5/6 Girls Tag competition. We wish this team all the best!

Congratulations to all

Regional Hooptime 2017

On Thursday November 9th, the Senior All Star Boys and All Star Girls Hooptime teams from Greenvale Primary School attended the Mill Park Stadium to compete in the Hooptime Regional Championships.

Both teams had mixed results with a number of close matches resulting in wins, losses and draws.
Unfortunately for both teams, they were unable to finish at the top of their pool in order to play off in the finals.
This means that both teams fell just a couple of wins short of qualifying for the state finals.

Well done to all students involved. The way you have pushed yourself with school basketball throughout 2017 is a credit to your hard work and commitment. You should be extremely proud of the efforts.

This was held at Thornbury Primary School. The students played seven games of chess each, finishing second overall and qualifying for the Regional Semi Finals.

On Thursday the October 26th, these same students represented our school at Marcellin College, Bulleen for the Regional Semi Finals.
The competition was tough and unfortunately our smaller size team found it difficult to compete with the larger numbers from other schools. However, the team were very proud of making it to the Regional Finals.

Regional Basketball 2017

On Friday October 27th, seven Greenvale Primary School students attended the Mill Park Stadium to compete in the Northern Metro Region Basketball Championships.

In our pool, the girls got off to a flying starting with a comfortable victory against Bell Street Primary School.
Greenvale then played against a much more evenly matched team from Glen Katherine Primary School in a close and exciting match. The girls were in front by a point with a minute left, by unfortunately relinquished the lead with approximately thirty seconds left, going down by two points.
The team finished second in their pool, therefore having to play against the top team from the other pool, St Martins of Tours. Greenvale kept within three points of St Martins at half time, but fell short in the second half, getting knocked out of the competition in the semi final.

Special thank yous to Ms D’Angelo for coaching and also Jodie and Sharon for supporting our team and assisting on the day.

Well done to the team for all your hard work and sportsmanship. You only fell a couple of wins short, in close matches, of making a state final. You should be extremely proud of your efforts.
