On Tuesday 9th of August, thirty-three Year 5 and 6 Greenvale PS students went off to compete in the Hume Girls AFL 9s competition.

This competition is a modified version of AFL played against various schools across the Hume City Council.

Greenvale PS entered three teams who all played with great spirit, skill and sportsmanship throughout the day.

At the end of the competition the undefeated Greenvale team was announced as Hume District champions and will go onto compete at a state final later on in the year.

Congratulations to all of the girls for their terrific effort throughout a very windy but fun filled day.

Divisional AFL

On Friday 22nd July, the Greenvale Interschool AFL Team played in the divisional championships at Jacana Reserve.

The team played in three matches against St Annes PS Sunbury, Wallan PS and Good Shepherd PS Gladstone Park.

Greenvale were strongly challenged in all of their matches, defeating St Annes and Wallan PS in the first two rounds.

The final match was a play off against Good Shepherd who were also undefeated.
Unfortunately for us, we lost this final match with Good Shepherd proving too strong.

Greenvale’s spirit, sportsmanship, skill and effort were constant highlights throughout the day.
The team should be incredibly proud of their efforts throughout the AFL season and proud that we were the only team to play a truly mixed team (males and females).

I hope all members of the AFL team continue to pursue the sport in the future and constantly look to improve their skills.

On Wednesday June 1st, 30 Greenvale PS students attended the Divisional Cross Country in representation of our district.

The students ran at Bundoora Park on a challenging track, across 2000 and 3000 meter events, against tough competition.

All Greenvale students ran with great spirit and endeavor and should be extremely proud of their efforts.

Students who finished in the top 10 of their event qualified for the Northern Metro Region Cross Country on Wednesday June 15th again at Bundoora Park.

I would like to congratulate both Will (10 Year Boys, 5th) and Alam (12 Year Boys, 9th) who will represent our school and our division at the regional event.

We wish you all the best.
