On Tuesday April 2nd, all students in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 participated in the Greenvale Primary School Athletics Carnival.
In perfect conditions out on the Bradford Oval, students competed in a range of events including 100m sprint, 200m sprint, 800m run, 1500m run, shot put, discus, long jump and high jump, across four age groups including 9s, 10s, 11s and 12s.
At the conclusion of each event, ribbons were given for first four place getters and points allocated to each House.
There was a trophy awarded for the House with the most points as well as a trophy awarded to the House which had displayed the great school spirit across the Cross Country and Athletics Carnivals.
Results are as follows:
Total House Points
4th: Woodlands 296
3rd: Gellibrand 403
2nd: Cumberland 537
1st: Oaklands 645
The individual results from this day will make an excellent starting point for selection into the Greenvale Athletics Team, which will go off to compete at the District Athletics on Friday August 16.
Thank you to the school staff for working tirelessly throughout the day and especially to the parent volunteers who have given up their time to make the day such a big success. It simply cannot run without you.
Congratulations to Cumberland, Oaklands and all of the students on their athleticism, sportsmanship and school spirit throughout the day. I hope to see you back on the track again soon!
