Book week is a time to celebrate reading and all the wonderful things about books. The Year 1 students and teachers had the opportunity to dress up as their favourite book character or a character relating to this year’s theme ‘find your treasure’. In the afternoon all of the Year 1 and 2 students made their way to the gym for a book parade. The students were all excited and had lots to say about their characters throughout the day. Thank you to parents for supporting this week. Below are some photos taken on the day.
On Tuesday 21st of August, Greenvale Primary had our annual Book Week Dress Up day! Students and teachers dressed up as their favourite book character, or matched the theme of ‘Find You Treasure’. There were lots of fabulous Year 2 Students with amazing, detailed and creative costumes. We saw Where’s Wally?, Harry Potter, Spiderman, Alice in Wonderland and much more! The students were involved in a parade where they walked to show off their stunning costumes to other students, teachers and visiting parents. WOW!
On Friday August 24th, nine Greenvale Primary School students attended the Craigieburn Sports Stadium to compete in the District Junior Hooptime.
The team experienced a mix of results including some strong wins, tight losses and even a draw. After playing off in a semi final the team finished in third position.
Throughout the day our students continually demonstrated our school values, maintaining a positive attitude and excellent sportsmanship.
Well done to all students involved and a special thank you to Ms Guzel for attending with us and supporting the team.
I hope to see you all back out on court again soon.

During Term 3, a group of Year 1 and Year 2 students were invited to participate in an excursion at Living Legends in Woodlands Park, Greenvale. Our students were selected to be part of the ‘Horses Birthday’ Celebrations where they explored information about the Melbourne Cup, visiting the stables and meeting past winners of the famous race! The students participated in arts and crafts throughout the day, which included; decorating horse shoes, colouring in and face painting. In the afternoon the students saw how the horses where weighed, they then went onto the scales to see how many students they had to put together to make them weigh the same as a horse. They also got to feed the horses some carrots and gave them a friendly pat. We all had a very exciting and educational day!
