Mischa, Kean and Max have been working hard all year, in and out of their Physical Education sessions with an aim of improving their physical performances.

Their athletics journeys have been varied, with some relatively new and others years in the making.
For their 2018 School Sport Victoria journey, it started all the back in Term One, when they competed at our Greenvale PS Athletics Carnival, winning their way into the Greenvale PS Athletics Team.
As they have progressed through the School Sport Victoria system they have proudly represented our school and made significant contributions to our success at District, Divisional, Regional and now State levels of competition.

Mischa represented Greenvale Primary School for the second time at the State Championships, this year claiming third in the 10 Year Girls Discus.

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.

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!
