Senior Hooptime 2016

On Friday the 2nd of September, fifty-six Year 5 and 6 students went to the Craigieburn Leisure Centre to compete in our districts Hooptime championships.

Hooptime is a single day, round robin style basketball competition with three separate levels of competition. Rookies (for beginners), Future Stars (intermediate standard) and All Stars (high standard).

Greenvale PS entered nine teams in total, three Rookies, two Future Stars and four All Star teams.

The Rookies teams had mixed results, winning and losing games, but had great smiles on their faces and simply enjoyed being out on the court (some for their first time).

The Future Star teams also had mixed results, winning and losing games, but continually displayed great improvement throughout the day.

The All Star teams competed with spirit and determination against strong opposition. One of the boys All Star teams went undefeated all day, until they unfortunately lost to Our Lady’s Craigieburn in a disappointing Grand Final. One of the girls All Star teams also went undefeated throughout the day and played Our Lady’s in a thrilling Grand Final where Greenvale scored the winning points with a mere twenty-seven seconds left on the clock.

Congratulations to our championship girls team and our

Asian Day Year 5

On Friday, the 29th of July, the years fives had an Asian celebration day. Each year 5 teacher had their own activity in which all the students tried their best and had a wonderful and amazing time.

One of the activities was Asians games. These activities included badminton, traditional clothing, checkers, puppets and jacks. Each activity had a fun and exciting vibe all the students had a magnificent time!

The second activity was Asian cooking. The dish we made was fried rice. Parent helpers and teachers helped the students prepare the dish. The ingredients included mushrooms, beans, carrots, capsicum, corn, soy source and of course rice. Each student had their own opinion on whether or not they liked the dish but every student gave it a try.

The last activity was origami. The objective was to make an origami crane. We used square pieces of paper to make the crane. Some of us might have found this activity to be harder than others but it was still an enjoyable activity.

Overall the year 5s had a superb time and we would like to thank all the parent helpers and of course Mrs Kirk, Ms White, Mr B and Miss Chilton
