Matthew has run through an outstanding Cross Country season, placing first at School, District and Division Cross Country events, smashing his personal best placing at the Regional Cross Country and proving to be a more than capable performer at the State Cross Country event.

In a race of approximately one-hundred competitors, Matthew placed 44th, putting him in the top fifty long distance runners for his age in Victoria. Matthew is running at an elite level and continues to rapidly improve his performance.

Congratulations on your amazing achievement this year.

Have aliens landed at Greenvale P.S?

When students, teachers and parents arrived at school for the start of Term 3, they were surprised, astonished and amazed. They found what looked like the remains of a spaceship in the playground. Because everyone had been enjoying the holidays, there were no witnesses to the landing and so no-one is really sure who was in the spaceship or what they might look like.

Principal of Greenvale Primary School, Angie Ireland said “We really don’t know what has happened but hopefully we will be able to work it out soon.”

Police are also baffled and have asked for any witnesses to the landing to come forward.

Teachers and students were amazed to find a crash site in the playground when they arrived at school after the holidays.

Well done to the cast and classes of the DreamNation Musical, which was held this week. They performed with great confidence and the shows were thoroughly enjoyed by the School Community.

Regional Cross Country 2019

On Wednesday June 19th, thirteen Greenvale Primary School students attended Bundoora Park to compete in the Regional Cross Country.

The Regional level of competition is one step below State representation, so the competition was of a very high standard.

The Greenvale Primary School students competed with great determination, resilience and spirit, experiencing a mix of results across 2000 and 3000m races.

Our highest achieving student, Matthew placed 9th in the 12 Year Boys event, earning a place in the State Championships in early Term 3.

All students should be extremely proud of their efforts, your willingness to work hard to improve your performance is a credit to yourself. Keep persevering in Cross Country next year and you will go a step closer to State representation.

We wish Mathew all the best at the State Championships next term.

Term 2 Science

Year 3/4 Living and Non Living Things

The students in Years 3 and 4 have continued to work on defining living and non-living things. They have been exploring the life stages of humans and life cycles of plants and animals. They have worked on the life cycles of tomato plants, frogs and butterflies with an emphasis on how particular animals undergo metamorphosis (the transformation or change an organism undergoes). The students also had the opportunity to independently investigate the life cycle of a chicken, kangaroo, shark or sunflower.

Year 5/6 Mission to Mars

After taking off from Earth in our rockets, the students investigated some of the challenges humans would face if they were to colonise Mars. They also undertook a design challenge in small groups to make a Lander using limited materials. They tested their landers from a height of one metre to see if their ‘astronauts’ landed safely or not. With their astronauts now on Mars, the students used Ozobots to simulate Rovers on the surface of Mars. They used visual coding to create a travel plan which incorporated sequencing, branching and looping. They had to include various challenges,
