Hoop-Time 2015

On Friday August 14th, thirty-two Year Four students from Greenvale Primary School went to the Craigieburn Leisure Centre to compete in Junior Hoop-Time Basketball Competition.

Greenvale PS entered four teams in the event, including an All Star Boys, All Star Girls (top division) and two Rookies teams (beginners).

The Rookies teams played a number of friendly matches against schools from our local district and experienced a mix of wins, losses and a draw.

Both the All Star Boys and Girls teams played in a more competitive competition and were skilful enough to remain undefeated throughout the day.

Well done to all Greenvale PS students who played with great skill, sportsmanship and enjoyment, and congratulations to the All Star Boys and Girls teams who are the district champions.

Physical Education and Sport – Term 3

The Sport and Physical Education programs have been very busy since the last website update.

Students in Prep, Year One and Two have explored units of work on dance, gymnastics and fundamental motor skills. During our dance unit, students practiced moving to the beat in individual, partnered and small group dances. Throughout gymnastics, students discovered the many different gymnastic support positions as well as methods of safely rolling, jumping and landing. When focusing on fundamental motor skills, students have performed soccer kicks, drop punts, underarm throws, overarm throws, basketball bounces, two-handed strikes and two-handed catches in discipline based sequences and associated these skills into minor games.

Students have the analyzed skills, tactics and knowledge necessary to participate in these sports and have actively explored this through minor games and skill based activities.
