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.

On Friday September 22nd, Greenvale Primary School celebrated the end of Term 3 with the annual Footy Colours Day event.

Our students looked wonderful in their footy colours and raised a large sum of money for the Fight Cancer Foundation.

The Year 6 House Captains ran footy activities for our junior students and the day concluded with the Footy Colours Parade which included heaps of music, dancing, high fives, cheering, raffles, giveaways and prizes.

‘Dancing Through The Decades’

Congratulations to all the students who performed 3 concerts for family and friends at the end of Term 3. Each grade were required to perform a song from one of the decades of 1950s to the 2000s. They practiced for several weeks during Performing Arts time and sometimes their teacher gave the students time to practice.

A big thank you to all staff of the school who gave wonderful support and assistance to ensure our concerts were a great success. Particular thanks to our Visual Arts Teacher who not only created the delightful backdrop of our concert but also worked hard behind the scenes, ensuring nervous and excited students were ready to perform.

For more pictures of the concert please visit our office area where a slide show of photos will be playing. These will be uploaded in the first week of Term 4.

With thanks

Mrs Heather Foletta

Performing Arts Teacher
