Throughout the first semester, Year 3 students have participated in a wide range of physical activities during Year level sport. In Term 1, students participated in athletics activities including discuss, shot put, long jump and relay. In Term 2 we started to work with some of the major sports including netball, football, basketball and soccer. Year 6 House Captains coached students and provided support to run the sports in Term 2 and did a fantastic job! Thank you so much to those amazing helpers.

We are scheduled to play against our final match of the season at home against Roxburgh Park PS, on the last day of term.
On Wednesday the 8th of June students in Year 1 had the opportunity to invite their grandparents to school for the afternoon. The students had previously learnt about how life has changed from their grandparents where they investigated how school, roles, toys and games have evolved overtime.
The grandparents spent time with the students in their classrooms to play games from the past such as, pick up sticks, elastics, hopscotch, quoits and marbles. The students were all very excited and happy to have their family at school. Below are some photos of the afternoon.

On Wednesday June 1st, 30 Greenvale PS students attended the Divisional Cross Country in representation of our district.
The students ran at Bundoora Park on a challenging track, across 2000 and 3000 meter events, against tough competition.
All Greenvale students ran with great spirit and endeavor and should be extremely proud of their efforts.
Students who finished in the top 10 of their event qualified for the Northern Metro Region Cross Country on Wednesday June 15th again at Bundoora Park.
I would like to congratulate both Will (10 Year Boys, 5th) and Alam (12 Year Boys, 9th) who will represent our school and our division at the regional event.
We wish you all the best.

On Wednesday the 4th of May, 70 excited Year 4 students carried their pillows and sleeping bags and boarded the bus for their first ever stay – away camp! The buses were filled with nervous laughter as the students made their way along the Mornington Peninsula to the fun-filled horse riding camp – Ace-Hi Ranch!
Students participated in a range of activities designed to develop confidence, team work and a sense of adventure! The giant swing, flying fox and rock climbing wall were just some of the highlights of the fun 3-day camp.
The students also had fun learning how to ride a horse and how to shoot a bow and arrow. It was fantastic to see the students working as a team to make their way through the very tricky obstacle course! Lots of giggling and laughter could be heard in the air as the children tried to swing across the ‘lake of alligators.’
By the end of our three day camp, new friendships were formed, fears were faced (and beaten!) and lots of tired yet happy campers returned home with new found confidence. Congratulations to all the Year 4 campers for their amazing behaviour, manners and attitude!
