Regional Hooptime 2017

On Thursday November 9th, the Senior All Star Boys and All Star Girls Hooptime teams from Greenvale Primary School attended the Mill Park Stadium to compete in the Hooptime Regional Championships.

Both teams had mixed results with a number of close matches resulting in wins, losses and draws.
Unfortunately for both teams, they were unable to finish at the top of their pool in order to play off in the finals.
This means that both teams fell just a couple of wins short of qualifying for the state finals.

Well done to all students involved. The way you have pushed yourself with school basketball throughout 2017 is a credit to your hard work and commitment. You should be extremely proud of the efforts.

Tennis Hot Shots 2017

Over four weeks of Term 3, all students in Years 3 and 4 at Greenvale Primary School took part in a Tennis Hot Shots program.

This program was delivered in conjunction with staff from the Greenvale Tennis Club, including their Head Coach, former professional tennis player and former Greenvale Primary School student Chris Guccione.

The students learnt a lot across the four weeks, refining the forehand, backhand, volleying and serving skills.
Each student received a voucher for a free group lesson at the Greenvale Tennis Club, and it was pleasing to hear that some students are now regularly coached at the club.

At the conclusion of the program the students played off in a Hot Shots tournament, with only one boy and one girl from Years 3 and 4 to win the title of Hot Shots Champions for 2017.

Following Mondays Grand Final, I would like to congratulate Rebekah and Michael for being the Hot Shots Champs for 2017.

I hope to see you continue to represent Greenvale Primary School on the sporting fields over the next few years.
