Senior Hooptime 2018

On Friday September 7th, the Greenvale Primary School Senior Hooptime students attended the Craigieburn Sports Stadium to complete in the district competition.

Our students competed in three levels of competition including All Star, Future Star and Rookies.

Our All Star Team showed great improvements in their team work and structures throughout the day, losing a few matches but never becoming dispirited. They finished off their last match with a draw in exciting and tight final seconds.

The Future Star Team played strongly throughout the day, winning all of their matches, up until the Grand Final. Unfortunately in this game they were caught off guard by a few fast breaks and found themselves behind with not enough time to catch up. Nevertheless, the team walked off court with (mostly) smiles still on their faces.

The Rookies team had a blast on court throughout the day, playing very strongly and winning all of their matches with great spirit and sportsmanship.

Well done to all students involved, you should be proud of your results and I hope to see you out on the sporting fields again soon!

Bloke’s Breakfast

On Thursday the 30th of August, Foundation Students invited their Dad’s along to attend the Bloke’s Breakfast of 2018. The morning was icy cold, but all who attended were quickly warmed by the fresh, hot and tasty pancakes. The pancakes were quickly gobbled down and thoroughly enjoyed by all. We would like give a special thanks to the wonderful Mr Mac, Mr Carol, Mr Rovetto, Mr Mura and Mr Scollo who cooked up a storm!

Performing Arts News September 2018

Last week the Year 6 students began presenting their ‘Composer’ projects to the class. Since the start of the term each student was required to choose a famous Composer from the past. They needed to find information and use a computer program to create an interesting slide show. After presenting their slide show they completed a self-assessment on how well they felt they went and what they could do to improve next time. Each Year 6 student was also required to complete a peer assessment for one student in the class.

After listening to some classical music from the Composers the students were quite surprised that they recognised the music, usually from TV commercials and movies. In fact Tchaikovsky’s music has been used for many children’s movies such as ‘Nutcracker Prince’ and ‘Barbie of Swan Lake’.

Some interesting facts. Did you know?

  • Edvard Grieg kept a good luck frog figurine in his pocket. He would pat it before each concert.
  • Joseph Haydn loved playing practical jokes. At age 17, he was kicked out of singing school, partly because he had cut off the pigtail of another boy, but mainly because he had “matured” and his once-beautiful voice had turned to

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.
