Day 2 at camp was yet another glorious day. In the beautiful sunshine, we faced our fears, collaborated in teams, climbed hills and walls, galloped on mighty steeds, admired the stars and viewed the hills in the moonlight. We chatted together, offered support and cheered each other on. Students demonstrated independence, resilience, kindness, compassion and friendship! What a wonderful journey we have been on. What’s instore for day 3, I wonder…
Year 4 students arrived safely at the Ace-Hi ranch yesterday and haven’t stopped since. They have been climbing, laughing, riding, scaling, swinging and having a great time! The students are settling down for a hearty breakfast ready for the big day ahead….stay tuned!
As part of our unit on Civics and Citizenship, Year 4 students were very excited to welcome the Mayor of Hume Cr Geoff Porter to Greenvale Primary school. He explained his important role in the council. We also learned more about how the council provides services for aged care, children and babies as well as organising waste collection, school crossing supervisors and animal registration. The council is responsible for maintaining our parks, gardens, footpaths and build amazing facilities like Splash.
Thank you to those parents who attended the Maths Information Nights for Year 3/4 and Year 5/6. Below are the slides from each of the sessions.

This week the Junior School Council reps for 2018 were announced at the morning assembly. The Year 4 team would like to congratulate Asli from 4MP and Emmanuel from 4RW for being announced as the new Junior School Council Reps for Year 5. It is a very exciting time for the new JSC reps and the Year 4 team would like to wish them a fantastic year as they take on board their new leadership roles for 2018. Well done!
As part of their Geography unit on the Congo Rainforest, Year 4 students raised money for the Dian Fossey Gorilla fund. To raise money, students made gold coin donations and participated in a competition to guess how many banana lollies were placed into a jar. Congratulations to Asli in 4MP who guessed correctly! The money raised by students will be going towards the adoption of a Mountain Gorilla in Africa, where they are looked after by staff at the Dian Fossey Gorilla Fund.
