District Cross Country 2016

On Friday May 13th, 59 Greenvale PS students went to Brimbank Park to compete at the district cross country against local schools.

Our team competed against hundreds of other students from ten local schools. All Greenvale students completed their 2000 and 3000 meter events and displayed our school values throughout the day.

Two outstanding individual performances came in the 11 Year Girls race with Alexander Geddes and Chelsea Gillard finishing second and third respectively.

In the overall standings Greenvale PS relinquished the cross country championship, finishing second to a strong St Carlo team.

Many of our students will advance to compete at the divisional cross country championships on Wednesday June 1st.

Year 1 Excursion to Melbourne Museum

IMG_2316During Term 2 the Inquiry topic is ‘Lets Turn Back Time’.  Students have been learning how families differ from one another in their class and about the past, present and future.

On Tuesday the 3rd of May students visited the Melbourne Museum to support their learning further. Students participated in a class led by the staff at the Museum called ‘My Grandmother’s Toybox’. They were shown how toys have changed over time and had the opportunity to touch these toys including a very old Marngrook football that was made out of possum skin.

Students also had the chance to look at different animals, walk through an old Melbourne style home and saw large bone structures from whales and dinosaurs. The students had a fantastic day and learnt lots of interesting facts. Below are some photos of the excursion.

As part of our unit on renewable and non-renewable energy sources, the Year 5 students designed and created a model of a wind-powered machine. They were required to create their model using mainly recycled materials found around the home. Here are some examples of the fantastic projects that were presented:
