On Monday 7th December the Senior Choir students visited 4 different Nursing Homes and sang Christmas carols to the Residents. The Nursing Homes were: North Western District Nursing home in Tullamarine, St Anne’s Hostel in Westmeadows, Arcadia Aged Care Home in Essendon and Opal Aged Care Meadow Heights. James also played ‘Away in a Manger’ on his guitar and his little sister Claudia sang. Well done to the choir students and congratulations for a fantastic effort in all performances throughout the year.
Well done to Brett, Shannon and Andrew who grew some very impressive ‘Mo’s’ in support of the Movember Foundation. At a special morning tea to celebrate the end of Movember and the removal of all that facial hair the boys raised $241.30 for the foundation. The ladies supported the boys with some ‘Mo’s’ of our own.
Beautiful weather, a picturesque setting and challenging activities were the hallmarks of our Year 6 camp. A huge thankyou to everyone involved, parents, teachers and students for making this such a successful camp.
Today Greenvale Primary School hosted its first ever Tabloid Sports.
Students in Years Foundation, One and Two participated in a range of events including, 50m sprints, kanga sack races, bean bag throws, parachute games, tunnel ball races, soccer dribbling activities, egg and spoon races as well as baton relays.
All events were just for fun, and the students engaged in them with great enjoyment and sportsmanship.
Thank you to all of the staff, students and parents who worked hard in hot conditions, to contribute to this fantastic day.
Student Voice Volunteer Day
On Friday, the 27th of November, the student voice team volunteered their time at the Opal Roxburgh Aged Care Facility in Meadow Heights.
Each student made a short presentation to showcase their hobbies/talents/achievements. The students then played bingo with the residents and then read to them and chatted. We had a great time and the students and residents were sad when it was time to leave!
Congratulations to the student voice members Jalle, Ben, Daniel, Eden, Sandu, Zain, Samantha and Selim; and to school captains and vice captains Darcy, Joshua, James and Isabelle for volunteering their time, and for demonstrating their strong leadership skills and strengthening their links with the local community.
A big thank you to teacher Mareeka Papadopolous for organising the visit and to parent helper Lisa Kenos for her time.
On Friday 20th November the Year 4 students participated in the exciting Greenvale Green Grocers market day! Students prepared, planted, picked and washed a variety of organic veggies to sell to their families. Below are just some of the yummy veggies we had to offer!
Each student wrote a persuasive letter to their families, convincing them to come and support our school community. They prepared colourful posters and catchy slogans and phrases, which they shared all afternoon. A huge thank you to all the families who came to support our wonderful Greenvale Green Grocers!
