Billy Slater Shield 2017

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.

The Girls Tackle team had a wins and losses playing against Our Ladys PS and Wallan PS, ultimately finishing runners up. They continued to show great spirit and also learnt a lot about the game.

The Girls Tackle team competed against Mt Ridley College and Plenty Parklands PS, finishing in first place as the District Girls Tag champions. Greenvale will now go onto compete at the State Finals in the 5/6 Girls Tag competition. We wish this team all the best!

Congratulations to all

District Athletics 2017

On Monday August 28th, seventy four Greenvale PS students attended the District Athletics which was held at the Meadowglen Athletics Stadium in Epping.

Our students competed across a range of events including high jump, long jump, triple jump, shot put, discus, hurdles, 100m sprint, 200m sprint, 800m run, 1500 run and 4 x 100m relay.
Greenvale PS students competed with great athleticism, sportsmanship and effort, displaying excellent behaviour throughout the day.

In total we concluded the day with 18 first place getters, 14 seconds and 6 thirds, totalling 138 points for our school.
In a close contest this placed our school in first place for our side of the competition. This is the eighth time Greenvale PS has retained the shield.

Congratulations to the Greenvale Athletics Team for 2017. I hope to see you all involved in Athletics again next year.
