Chicken pox

We have received notification of a confirmed case of Chickenpox at Cranbourne Carlisle. This is an isolated case at this stage, but we need to inform our community of the following symptoms:

  • low-grade fever
  • general discomfort, illness or lack of wellbeing (malaise)
  • intensely itchy skin rash — appears as small blisters surrounded by irregularly-shaped patches of inflamed skin. The blisters first form on the body and later on the head and limbs. They usually burst and develop crusts after about five days
  • ulcers may develop in certain areas

Chickenpox is infectious 2 days prior to the onset of the rash until the blisters have all crusted into scabs. Children are not to attend school during this time.

Pregnant women and newborn babies should not be exposed to people with chickenpox.

See the link below for more information.

Important reminders


Thank you to the many parents who have finalised payment of essential item school fees, or who have organised a payment plan with the School Office. Prompt payment of these fees enables us to purchase resources to enhance children’s learning in classrooms, PE equipment, art supplies, ICT equipment and so on.

Families who have not yet paid their fees are asked to do so as soon as possible. Payments may be made in cash, BPay or via EFTPOS. Please see Michelle at the School Office.

We are very grateful that many of our families have chosen to also pay the small voluntary contribution of $40. With this money, we will add to growing library collection, purchase new take home books and add further reading resources.  It is not too late for families to choose to make this payment!!


Personal property is often brought to school by children, staff and visitors. This property can include mobile phones, music devices, electronic games, calculators, musical instruments, sporting equipment and cars parked on school premises.

The Department of Education and Training does not hold insurance for personal property brought to school and it has no capacity to pay for any loss or damage to such property.

Cranbourne Carlisle Primary School does not have an insurance policy for lost, stolen or damaged personal property. Children are not permitted to bring any unnecessary or particularly valuable items to school. Mobile phones brought to school MUST be left at the School Office and collected at the end of the day.


The Department of Education and Training does not provide personal accident insurance for children. Parents and guardians are responsible for paying the cost of medical treatment for injured children, including any transport costs.

Student accident insurance policies are available from the private insurance market. These cover a range of medical expenses not covered by Medicare. They can be obtained by parents for individual children.

Parents are reminded that Cranbourne Carlisle Primary School does not have a whole of school accident insurance policy.

Community Night

At Cranbourne Carlisle we believe the key to a successful child is the support of school, family and the wider community. We see local community groups as vital in the development of children and families and as such are hosting a community night.

There will also be two ‘Reading at Home’ information sessions to assist parents in setting positive reading habits in the home.

Time: 5 – 7:30pm  Date: Tuesday 19 February
