Our Grades 3-6 students have just completed their two week soccer clinic which was delivered by the Melbourne City SEDA students. The students participated in a variety of soccer skills that focused on kicking, passing, shooting and communication. Congratulations to all of our students for participating with enthusiasm.
During Term 3 the grade 5/6’s have been playing a “Street Soccer” competition during lunch times and recesses. This competition has been an excellent way for our students and teachers to build positive relationships through the game of soccer. The senior students have developed leadership, team work, physical education, social and mathematic skills through the competition. The students umpire, score and run the competition with teacher guidance and assistance. The program has been running for 6 weeks.
“It makes people concentrate and do their work and when they do their work they are rewarded by playing street soccer.” Adam 5/6BL
“It’s a fun, fair and safe game to play at lunch. I like the ladders and how the goals are set up.” Hassan 5/6R
This term the 5/6 students became scientists. We undertook a range of experiments and the students wrote up procedures, made hypothesis and analysed what was happening.
On Friday 4th September, the Travelling Kitchen zoomed into Lalor Primary School for the 5/6 Incursion. All the students were very excited to learn about healthy eating, hygiene and cooking food.
All students prepared and cooked delicious Vegesaurus Rolls (vegetable sausage rolls).
It was a fantastic ‘hands on’ learning experience!
“It tasted better than the sausage rolls you buy at a shop.” Casey
“I had a wonderful time cooking a healthy meal and will definitely cook it at home.” Isabelle
“I loved the incursion because we got to cook, eat and get messy… which is why we had to do dishes when we finished” Joseph :P
The Whittlesea AFL Cup tournament took place on Thursday the 3rd September at Mill Park Lakes Recreational Reserve. Our boys played their first game against St. Peters Epping. Our boys were very nervous in their first game and it showed as they ran out onto the field. However as the game progressed the boys started to build confidence but as gale force winds began to blow St. Peters Epping ran away with the game.
In our second match we played against Lalor East Primary School. Our boys learnt from the mistakes of the first game and with a few tactical changes the boys took the game on. The communication was loud and clear and our boys were switched on. The boys kicked the first four goals before the opposition kicked a behind. Casey, Camile, Joshua and Lucas dominated the midfield. The ball was moving so quick into the forward line that before Hassan and Ahmed knew it they had kicked 2 goals each. Lalor Primary were successful with their first win of the tournament.
The boys were beginning to gather momentum and Al Siraat College was next on our list. After Al Siraat College had seen the efficiency of Redah and Riley using the wings and how fast the ball had been travelling into the potent attack of Peter and Kye they had to put all 18 players into their back line. With the brilliant skills of Gadier and Alzaki switching the ball then attacking our boys broke though Al Siraats’ defence within minutes, Lalor were in front and charging to a Grand Final. Adam kicked a few goals to seal Lalor Primary’s first place in a Grand Final in over five years.
Our boys had earned the opportunity to play off in the Grand Final against St. Peters. Lalor PS got defeated by St. Peters. Well done to St. Peters and congratulations to Lalor on coming Runners Up!!!
