Greenlands 'walk around' Australia

STUDENTS, staff and parents at Greenlands have been tasked with a special challenge of walking the distance of Highway 1, about 15,000km around the edge of Australia.

The challenge is designed to encourage health and wellbeing, as well as be a fun reward for a positive term.

At this stage, the combined effort has brought us to Burketown and we're about to head into Northern Territory. Some students individually clocked more than 45km.

At the end of Term Two, students, staff and parents took part in a gala day and students enjoyed in a range of Australiana activities.

Sporting success

TERM Two interschool sports were a success.

Our senior netball team went through the season undefeated and, in a hard- fought final against The Summit State School, won the championship.

Junior netballers will play Severnlea in the final.

Senior soccer playrs were undefeated and are set to play Glen Aplin in what should be a close match.

Greenlands trail ride

THE upcoming Greenlands trail ride will be held on August 26-27. The track has changed and two loops (one smaller and one larger), will be open at the same time.

The trail ride is the school's major fundraiser and allows the P&C to fund resources and support for camps, excursions and more.

Prep open day

GREENLANDS State School has a proud reputation of providing quality education and giving children a great start to their education.

Prep open day on August 29 is a chance for families to visit our school, spend time in classrooms participating in activities, meet teachers and students and tour the school. To register interest or book an enrolment interview, contact 4683 6205 or enrolments@greenlanss. eq.edu.au.
