We had a big day yesterday! We started our rotation of activities on the giant swing, archery, team rescue, flying fox just to name a few. For lunch we had hamburgers and spent the afternoon at Amaze ‘n’ Things. Last night we sat around the camp fire and roasted marshmallows. Check out the photos!
Students have been competing in the mini-olympics today (photos below). Everyone’s having a fantastic time!
On Friday September 21st, Greenvale Primary School celebrated its annual Footy Colours Day.
Students were able to wear their footy colours to school on this day, displaying many teams from the AFL, NRL and A-League, as well as national and international soccer and rugby, in addition to some local sporting clubs too.
Students were asked to contribute a gold coin donation to this fantastic day and we raised $822.85 for the charity ‘Fight Cancer Foundation.’
The House Captains ran footy related activities at recess for students in Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2 and we celebrated the end of term with a footy parade in the final hour which included heaps of prizes and giveaways.
Thank you all for proudly displaying your colours, I can’t wait to do it again next year.
Over four weeks in Term 3, students in Years 3 and 4 at Greenvale Primary School participated in a Hot Shots Tennis unit.
The program was delivered under the guidance of professionals from the Greenvale Tennis Club, including former student and Australian tennis star Chris Guccione.
Over the unit students spent time developing their repertoire of shots including forehands, backhands, serves and volleys before engaging in a play-off to win their way into the Hot Shots Grand Final.
The Hot Shots Grand Final took place today, with the top 16 male and female players from Years 3 and 4 competing against each other in a knockout tournament.
Well done to all of the students who made it into the final and a special congratulations to the following students who are our Hot Shots Champions for 2018:
Alvin and Melisa.
To all of the students in Years 3 and 4, I hope you are feeling increasingly confident on the tennis court and I hope to see you continue to improve your skills into the future.
Performing Arts News by Mrs Foletta
This week is planning week where students are given extra fun activities by the Specialists while their classroom teachers are planning their programs for next term.
The year 4s and 5s that had music on Tuesday were given the opportunity to create their own music on their laptops using free computer programs Incredibox and Song maker.
Congratulations to the students who performed to everyone at Monday’s Assembly and sang a really fun song called ‘Best Day Ever’.
The Greenvale Choir continue to practice during lunch sessions and will be performing some great songs at the Art Show next term. They’ll be appearing twice on the night just in case you can’t make it to their first performance. Looking forward to seeing you there!
Our final day at camp included more exciting challenges. Students had one last rotation before lunch and then it was time to head home. Some campers were a little worn out and took the opportunity to have a nap on the bus, while others enjoyed their last chance to share their favourite moments of the camp. Our worn-out adventurers were eager to return to the comforts of home, taking lasting memories with them.
