On Tuesday December 12th, Greenvale Primary’s foundation students participated in an ‘Amazing Race’ around the school. Students worked in teams to read clues that led them to different parts of our school, at each location students received a word on a piece of paper. After finding all 10 locations and collecting their words students then needed to use these words to make a sentence. It was pleasing to see so many smiles and fun had by the students, the ability to work as a team was most impressive!
On Thursday 7th November all Foundations, Year 1s and Year 2s sang the ‘Music Count Us In’ song at 12.30pm, the same time as students all around Australia. ‘Music Count Us In’ is built around a unique program song. The writing of the program song each year begins with our National Song writing Competition, open to all students from across Australia. The finalists of the Song writing Competition then gather together to write the program song, with the assistance of Program Ambassador John Foreman and a guest celebrity Program Mentor. The song is then recorded by students and released to all registered schools.
Across a busy week in Term Four, many of the Year 5 and 6 students from Greenvale Primary School participated in a number of Sporting Gala Days. This included the Cricket Gala, Northern Metro Region Volleyball and the Boys and Girls Rugby Gala Days.
The Cricket Gala was a huge success, with over sixty Greenvale Primary students entering the competition across seven teams. Throughout the hot day at Roxburgh Park, our students played with great endeavour and spirit, with fantastic results. We now have a boys and girls cricket team who will go onto play Regional Finals later in Term 4.

Our girls played their best volleyball for the year, pushing each team to wire in close and tense, however were unsuccessful in advancing through to State Championships. Congratulations to our Volleyball Girls. You are an amazing team, keep practising and you will go onto bigger and better things.
