A buzz at Greenvale Primary

On Tuesday the 22nd of November, as part of their Economics unit the Year 5 and Year 6 listened to the inspiring, brave and mesmerising Koky Saly.

On that day Koky Saly talked about his struggles and battles through three tough years of his life. Koky Saly was inspiring because he fought bravely to handle this time and because he still kept dreaming of this day of his success even when his sister/ best friend died.

How he started his business/ Charity which is BeeKeeper Parade, he got this inspiration when his sister passed away and he always knew that his sister was still dreaming about making this successful charit.  He was the presenter we have had this year!

Thanks to our teachers for organising Koky Saly to talk to us

Year 5 Camp Reflection

YEAR 5 CAMP By Nicholas Fruci, 5AB

Hello! On the 4th to the 7th of October, the Grade 5s went to camp at Philip Island Adventure Resort. The activities were archery, GIANT swing, twin flying fox, canoeing, low ropes, ponding, swimming and pancake cooking. We also had a disco, night walk, movie and a quiz. Some of the meals were baked spuds, burgers, chicken wraps, schnitzel, fish n chips, pasta and more.

Each cabin had 4-5 people with bunk eds and a double. The funniest part of camp was people screaming on the GIANT swing going AHHHHHHHHHH that was funny and the people screaming AHHH on the night walk ha ha.

2016 Year 5 Camp Day 4

On our final day we packed up and boarded the bus and headed off to watch the pelicans being fed. Before leaving the camp the cleaning staff complimented our children on the tidiness of their rooms, telling us that we were one of the best camp groups that they had ever had. We farewelled Emily our PIAR activity organiser, we were her last group at Phillip Island Adventure Resort as she heads off to NSW and a new job.

After taking a walk along the pier and watching the pelicans being fed a tired but happy group of campers said goodbye to Phillip Island and headed for home. A huge thankyou to everyone who attended, parents, teachers and students. You all contributed to a fantastic camp.

2016 Year 5 Camp Day 3

Day 3 saw the sun shining brightly as we headed off to Smith’s Beach. After lunch we cooked campfire pancakes, searched for insects and tadpoles in the pond and had a well earned swim. Tonight it’s party time as we all get on our camp T-shirts and hit the dance floor.
