State Athletics 2017

On Monday October 30th, Mischa and Max from Greenvale Primary School competed in the State Track and Field Championships held at Lakeside Stadium in Albert Park.

Mischa competed in the 10 Year Girls 80m Hurdles as the only 9 year old in the state finals. She ran slightly below her best in the heats, falling only 0.05 of a second short of qualifying for the final.

Max ran a personal best in his 11 Year Boys 200m heat, qualifying third fastest for the final. The rain poured for the final, making for a slow track, ultimately Max finished 5th.

Well done to both Max and Mischa on a outstanding individual achievements. You have competed at the highest level in the state and both proved to be outstanding athletes. You should be extremely proud of yourself.
I look forward to working with you through the School Sport Victoria pathway again in 2018.

Regional Athletics 2017

On Wednesday October 18th, four Greenvale Primary School students attended the Meadowglen Athletics Track to compete in the Northern Metropolitan Region Athletics Championships.

In hot and sunny conditions, our students competed in a range of events including hurdles, 200m, 800m and 1500m. With mixed results throughout the day, Greenvale Primary School students maintained a positive, friendly  attitude while competing with great determination and sportsmanship.

Two of the highlights of the day were Mischa’s 1st place in the 80m hurdles, running as a bottom aged student in the 10 Year Girls and Max’s 2nd place in the 200m sprint, surprising his opposition in the 11 Year Boys.

Both of these students will go on to compete at the State Athletics Championships at Lakeside Stadium on Monday October 30th. This is an amazing achievement.

Congratulations to all students who competed at this years Regional Athletics. You have continually pushed yourselves to be the best that you can be, you have represented our school at such a high level of competition and you always strive to improve your performances. You should be extremely proud of your results.
