Latitude

This term for Curiosity we have been learning about forces and gravity. On Tuesday the 28th of November the Year 2’s went to Latitude. At Latitude we completed lots of different activities. We went on an very high obstacle course and did some rock climbing. We also got to jump, play dodge ball and shoot basketball hoops on the big trampolines. After our session we went to Bundoora Park and ate lunch. We all really enjoyed the day and had a lot of fun!!

Below are some pictures from the day.

Chess Competition 2017

On Tuesday September 19th Evan, Sethouli, Alvina, Ben and Sean represented Greenvale Primary School in Primary Chess Victoria’s Interschool Chess Competition. This was held at Thornbury Primary School. The students played seven games of chess each, finishing second overall and qualifying for the Regional Semi Finals.

On Thursday the October 26th, these same students represented our school at Marcellin College, Bulleen for the Regional Semi Finals.
The competition was tough and unfortunately our smaller size team found it difficult to compete with the larger numbers from other schools. However, the team were very proud of making it to the Regional Finals.

We also got to see what the Melbourne sky looks like at night time, we saw lots of stars and constellations. During our visit to Scienceworks we also got to explore ‘Sportworks’ and ‘Think Ahead’. We had a wonderful day and leant lots of new things!

Multicultural Week

At the end of Term 2, the Year 2 students all participated in a Multicultural Week.

On Tuesday we looked at Indigenous Australians. The students did charcoal drawings, decorated boomerangs and got to taste ‘bush tucker’.

On Wednesday we looked at Multicultural Australians. We walked to the Greenvale shopping centre to investigate food and grocery items available from other countries, we cooked rice and used chopsticks to eat it and we made necklaces from macaroni.

On Thursday we studied Australia. The students dressed up in Aussie bush attire and were able to try some Australian food- vegemite sandwich and lamingtons.

We all had a fantastic week celebrating Multiculturalism in Australia. Below are some photos of the students having fun!

Congratulations to all Year 5 and Year 6 students (and teachers) for collecting so many donations for the ASRC Food bank – we have done an AMAZING job. Over $3000 worth of donations were collected. The volunteers at ASRC were overwhelmed with the generosity shown by the Greenvale community.

See the photo of just how much food we collected. OVER 100 shopping bags filled with groceries. What a fantastic effort!
