Student Voice – GRIP Leadership Conference

On Wednesday the 17th of February 2016, the Student Voice team was lucky enough to attend a G.R.I.P leadership conference in the city. We were very excited and couldn’t wait to attend. When we entered the building we couldn’t believe how many students were there! There were around 50 schools participating.

Roden, Andy and Carl, who work at G.R.I.P, went through the conference with us. We received a booklet with games and information about leadership. Students could win leadership badges if they won a game.

One of the games involved getting to know other people from different schools. The game was called ‘The Voice’ where we had to walk around and ask students who weren’t from our school if they could sing in a specific way. The first person to complete their game board was the winner. Unfortunately, no one from our school won but we had a great time playing!

One of the awesome ideas we discussed was investigating a new three step campaign to ‘stamp out bullying’ at Greenvale Primary. Some campaign methods include making posters and putting them around the school, coming up with a slogan, advertising on our school website and making assembly announcements.

Performing Arts Feb 2016

Performing Arts News by Mrs Foletta

February 2016

The students have settled well into Performing Arts routines this year and are having a great time singing, dancing and playing instruments.

This term, three Foundation classes are attending Performing Arts while the other three classes will begin next term.

They are learning “Advance Australia Fair” and dancing to Peter Combe’s “Stuck in a Pizza”. They are also learning about the music ‘beat’ and how to play percussion instruments in time to the beat.

This term, two Year One classes and 1/2H are attending Performing Arts while the other two Year Ones will begin next term. They are singing and dancing to a song called “Seasons”, which also assists their learning about the 4 different seasons of the year. They are learning the difference between a beat and a rhythm, while playing percussion instruments to different rhythms.

Year Two students from two classes are learning a fun song called “Sunshine”, which we hope to sing to everyone at Assembly soon. The other two classes will begin next term. They are participating in movement, drama and dancing activities.

Year Three students have been very excited about learning to play the recorder. They have
