Footy Colours Day 2018

On Friday September 21st, Greenvale Primary School celebrated its annual Footy Colours Day.
Students were able to wear their footy colours to school on this day, displaying many teams from the AFL, NRL and A-League, as well as national and international soccer and rugby, in addition to some local sporting clubs too.

Students were asked to contribute a gold coin donation to this fantastic day and we raised $822.85 for the charity ‘Fight Cancer Foundation.’
The House Captains ran footy related activities at recess for students in Foundation, Year 1 and Year 2 and we celebrated the end of term with a footy parade in the final hour which included heaps of prizes and giveaways.

Thank you all for proudly displaying your colours, I can’t wait to do it again next year.

Hot Shots Tennis 2018

Over four weeks in Term 3, students in Years 3 and 4 at Greenvale Primary School participated in a Hot Shots Tennis unit.
The program was delivered under the guidance of professionals from the Greenvale Tennis Club, including former student and Australian tennis star Chris Guccione.

Over the unit students spent time developing their repertoire of shots including forehands, backhands, serves and volleys before engaging in a play-off to win their way into the Hot Shots Grand Final.
The Hot Shots Grand Final took place today, with the top 16 male and female players from Years 3 and 4 competing against each other in a knockout tournament.

Well done to all of the students who made it into the final and a special congratulations to the following students who are our Hot Shots Champions for 2018:
Alvin and Melisa.

To all of the students in Years 3 and 4, I hope you are feeling increasingly confident on the tennis court and I hope to see you continue to improve your skills into the future.

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!
