Cricket Clinics

Cricket Clinics for Year 5
Coaches from Cricket Victoria came to Gardenvale PS this term to conduct a series of clinics for the Year 5 students.
Emma Gallagher, the Development Officer for Cricket Victoria brought state players, both male and female to Gardenvale PS to coach our students in batting, fielding and bowling skills. All equipment was provided by Cricket Vic. The clinics were a great way to teach skill development and the T20 game. A most enjoyable and productive program for all involved!

Bike Ed

Congratulations to the 80+ Year 5 students on the successful completion of their Bike Education Week.
The program involves a mix of practical activities conducted off-road (in the school grounds) and on-road (on local roads) together with classroom activities.

Bike Ed inspires children to develop their bicycle riding skills and their physical capability. Other benefits include enhanced health, fitness and wellbeing, confidence and independence and learning and social development. The final activity for the week is a ride from school to Gasworks Arts Park, Albert Park. A total of 24kms there and back through local streets and along the coastal bike path to a barbeque lunch.
The children under the guidance of their teachers and parents put into practise their newly acquired knowledge of the ‘road traffic environment’. They negotiate traffic light crossings, roundabouts and busy intersections. No mean feat for a group of over 90 kids!!
