District Cross Country 2018

On Thursday May 24th, 59 students from Greenvale Primary School attended Brimbank Park to compete in the District Cross Country.

In ideal running conditions, the Cross Country Team battled against hundreds of runners from 16 local schools.
The students competed across 2000 and 3000 metre events and represented our school with great pride, setting an outstanding example for our school among the local community.

We experienced many great results throughout the day, with 21 students qualifying through to the Divisional Cross Country on May 30th.
Some of our students placed in the top three of their respective events including:
9/10 Year Old Girls: 3rd, Victoria
9/10 Year Old Boys, 1st, Omer
11 Year Old Girls: 1st, Maiya
12 Year Old Boys: 3rd, Royce

In the overall points standings, Greenvale Primary School finished in first place among all of the schools winning another Cross Country Championship.
This result is a testament to the hard work, dedication and high standards of the Greenvale Cross Country team.
The team trained hard each week, constantly motivated each other to achieve their best and most importantly had a lot of fun throughout the process.

Congratulations to the team and every individual on their achievements.

On Tuesday November 14th, thirty-one Greenvale Primary School students attended the Lakeside Reserve in Roxburgh Park to compete in the District Billy Slater Shield.

In hot and windy conditions, the Greenvale PS students competed with great effort and sportsmanship. We entered three teams, one in the Year 6 Boys Tackle competition, one in the Year 5/6 Girls Tackle competition and one in the Year 5/6 Girls Tag competition.

The Boys team had a mix of results, including wins, losses and draws, playing against Mt Ridley College, Wallan PS, Our Ladys PS and Plenty Parklands PS. The boys unfortunately missed out on the final but still had a great time and learnt a lot about the game.
