On Friday December 8th all staff and students in Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2 participated in Greenvale Primary Schools Tabloid Sports.

This fun filled morning was spent out in the school grounds and across the Bradford Oval as students participated in a range of active events focusing on participation, sportsmanship and school spirit.

The events consisted of 50m sprints, bean bag balance relays, parachute games and tunnel ball races. The students looked amazing in their house colours and our House Captains did an amazing job of running the activities.

Thank yous to the parents who volunteered their time to assist and spectate on the day, the captains for (once again) stepping up in their leadership role and the teachers for working tirelessly.
