Our final day at camp included more exciting challenges. Students had one last rotation before lunch and then it was time to head home. Some campers were a little worn out and took the opportunity to have a nap on the bus, while others enjoyed their last chance to share their favourite moments of the camp. Our worn-out adventurers were eager to return to the comforts of home, taking lasting memories with them.
Day 2 at camp was yet another glorious day. In the beautiful sunshine, we faced our fears, collaborated in teams, climbed hills and walls, galloped on mighty steeds, admired the stars and viewed the hills in the moonlight. We chatted together, offered support and cheered each other on. Students demonstrated independence, resilience, kindness, compassion and friendship! What a wonderful journey we have been on. What’s instore for day 3, I wonder…
Year 4 students arrived safely at the Ace-Hi ranch yesterday and haven’t stopped since. They have been climbing, laughing, riding, scaling, swinging and having a great time! The students are settling down for a hearty breakfast ready for the big day ahead….stay tuned!
As part of our unit on Civics and Citizenship, Year 4 students were very excited to welcome the Mayor of Hume Cr Geoff Porter to Greenvale Primary school. He explained his important role in the council. We also learned more about how the council provides services for aged care, children and babies as well as organising waste collection, school crossing supervisors and animal registration. The council is responsible for maintaining our parks, gardens, footpaths and build amazing facilities like Splash.
Our students all had a fantastic time during our Year 3 ‘Sleepover’ on Friday October, 14th. They were kept busy during the day and demonstrated how ‘Greenvale kids are Great’ by displaying their kind, courteous and gracious behaviour while visiting the United Cinemas, Craigieburn and Airborn trampoline park in Roxburgh Park. Both venues did a fantastic job of looking after us and we were very appreciative.
Once back at Greenvale Primary school, the students were spoilt with a lovely afternoon tea and some scrumptious pizza dinner from My Mates Pizza, in Glenroy. Of course there were a few nerves but overall the students were amazing during what was their first night away from their family. Well Done Year 3s!
Year 3 Sleepover
By Nathan La Motta 3WR
On Friday the 14th of October 2016 the year 3s had a sleepover. It was an awesome day with over 100 kids and lots of activities.
First off, we went to the movies and watched ‘The Secret Life of Pets’. We had popcorn and a drink. The movie was very funny and also very silly. It ended with a cliff hanger. The cinema staff were funny, fabulous and friendly – they
Students across Year 3 collaborated in Term 2 to create amazing PowerPoint presentations with images and information they had researched. Some students went beyond the task requirements and began to explore the audiovisual aspects of the application. Some great examples are attached.
As we launch into Term 3, we would very much like to thank the Term 2 Class Captains for consistently demonstrating Greenvale Primary school values while completing their role. This term, we were once again inspired by the standard of speeches given by students vying to be Term 3 Class Captains. These students promoted their impressive personal qualities, while persuading and entertaining their peers to vote for them. Congratulations to the Term 3 Class Captains: Aliya Fikir and Christopher Scalise in 3AK, Rayhan Helou and Luca Scalise in 3EB, Emilia Morda and Angus Bartolo in 3SM, and Jasmine Vixayvong and Lincoln Driver in 3WR.
