The Great Year Five Bake-Off

The Great Bake-Off 2015 was a huge success. The year five students have been busy all this term exploring recipes, sourcing the best prices for ingredients, creating a budget and preparing advertising posters. Over the weekend they met up with their group to shop and prepare their product for the Bake-Off.

On Monday, the 16th of November, the students set up their stalls and the rest of the school came to visit to purchase their delicious treats! Yum, yum!

We are proud to announce that classes 5SC and 5C raised a total of $677.00 which will be donated to UNICEF Australia to help support and fund children’s rights to education, sanitation, medical care, clean water and nutrition.

5LD and 5SM raised a total of $897.80c to be donated to the Sanfilippo Children’s Foundation, which is trying to find a cure for a rare genetic brain condition where sufferers do not tend to live beyond 12-20 years.

On behalf of the student voice, we would like to thank all of the Greenvale Primary School families that kindly donated books for the Smith Family Toy and Book Appeal.

We are proud to announce that we collected 378 books!! These books will be given as Christmas gifts to less fortunate Australian children.

The books have been tagged and boxed and are just waiting to be delivered to The Smith Family.
