Divisional Basketball 2018

On Friday October 19th, nine Greenvale Primary School students attended Boardmans Stadium in Sunbury to compete in the Divisional Basketball Competition.

Greenvale played three matches against Westmeadows PS, St Annes PS and Willmott Park. The team started the day off a little slow, before producing some of their best basketball in the second and third matches.

Despite disappointing results the students were able to get much needed development and enjoyment out of the day.
Thank you to Mrs D’Angelo for coaching the team, and thank you to the parents who came along to cheer the team on.

Senior Hooptime 2018

On Friday September 7th, the Greenvale Primary School Senior Hooptime students attended the Craigieburn Sports Stadium to complete in the district competition.

Our students competed in three levels of competition including All Star, Future Star and Rookies.

Our All Star Team showed great improvements in their team work and structures throughout the day, losing a few matches but never becoming dispirited. They finished off their last match with a draw in exciting and tight final seconds.

The Future Star Team played strongly throughout the day, winning all of their matches, up until the Grand Final. Unfortunately in this game they were caught off guard by a few fast breaks and found themselves behind with not enough time to catch up. Nevertheless, the team walked off court with (mostly) smiles still on their faces.

The Rookies team had a blast on court throughout the day, playing very strongly and winning all of their matches with great spirit and sportsmanship.

Well done to all students involved, you should be proud of your results and I hope to see you out on the sporting fields again soon!
