The weather continues to be hot and sunny which means lots of water, sunscreen and hats for our campers. Our day was filled with high ropes, flying fox rides, giant swings and ball games. Lots of challenges to be met and conquered. After lunch it was off to the beach again where throwing buckets of water at each other seemed to be the main game. At dinner time our delicious lasagna was followed by birthday cake as we celebrated 3 birthdays. Tonight it is movie night then a well earned rest.
After a bit of a delayed start we finally got underway and had a smooth run down to camp. On arrival we had lunch, put our bags in our rooms, got changed into our beach gear, slipped, slopped, slapped and headed for the beach. The weather was beautiful, the water was cool and everyone had a ball. Returning to our cabins we showered and sat down to a delicious dinner of chicken schnitzel and salad followed by merainge topped ice cream. With dinner out of the way it was down to the oval for a game of cricket or just relaxing. Currently everyone is playing 1 minute to win it (I will post photos of this mad game tomorrow) Its been a busy day.
On Tuesday November 14th, thirty-one Greenvale Primary School students attended the Lakeside Reserve in Roxburgh Park to compete in the District Billy Slater Shield.
In hot and windy conditions, the Greenvale PS students competed with great effort and sportsmanship. We entered three teams, one in the Year 6 Boys Tackle competition, one in the Year 5/6 Girls Tackle competition and one in the Year 5/6 Girls Tag competition.
The Boys team had a mix of results, including wins, losses and draws, playing against Mt Ridley College, Wallan PS, Our Ladys PS and Plenty Parklands PS. The boys unfortunately missed out on the final but still had a great time and learnt a lot about the game.
The Girls Tackle team had a wins and losses playing against Our Ladys PS and Wallan PS, ultimately finishing runners up. They continued to show great spirit and also learnt a lot about the game.
The Girls Tackle team competed against Mt Ridley College and Plenty Parklands PS, finishing in first place as the District Girls Tag champions. Greenvale will now go onto compete at the State Finals in the 5/6 Girls Tag competition. We wish this team all the best!
Congratulations to all
During week 3 the Year 4 students celebrated Italian week. Students came to school dressed in Italian colours and began the celebration by watching a few Italian performances at the school morning assembly. Students also enjoyed watching a musical play in the school gym. The play was filled with laughter and the students enjoyed watching it. During the week students also celebrated Italian week by having a Italian feast in their classrooms! During lunch time they ate pizzas, crostoli’s and different flavoured gelati. They looked molto bellisimo! Here are some photos from the play.

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.
On Monday October 30th, Mischa and Max from Greenvale Primary School competed in the State Track and Field Championships held at Lakeside Stadium in Albert Park.
Mischa competed in the 10 Year Girls 80m Hurdles as the only 9 year old in the state finals. She ran slightly below her best in the heats, falling only 0.05 of a second short of qualifying for the final.
Max ran a personal best in his 11 Year Boys 200m heat, qualifying third fastest for the final. The rain poured for the final, making for a slow track, ultimately Max finished 5th.
Well done to both Max and Mischa on a outstanding individual achievements. You have competed at the highest level in the state and both proved to be outstanding athletes. You should be extremely proud of yourself.
I look forward to working with you through the School Sport Victoria pathway again in 2018.
