The NDIS transition will be rolled out in southern Melbourne on 1 September
The National Disability Insurance Agency (NDIA) will be offering 11 community information sessions across various locations to introduce the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) into the southern Melbourne community. A Department representative will be present to answer school-related questions.
The NDIS transition is due to be rolled out in southern Melbourne on 1 September 2018.
The sessions will cover topics including:
what is the NDIS and how does it work?
what kind of support can I access through the NDIS?

How to register
The event will be held at the following locations and times:
Years Three, Four and Five children are very excited about their camping experiences happening in Terms Three and Four.
The numbers are now final for the Year Three overnight camp to Manyung in Mt Eliza and we are delighted that so many children are attending.
There are still some places available for both the Year Four urban camp in Melbourne and the Year Five camp to Grantville Lodge. Deposits must be made by the end of Term Two in order to secure a place.
Please contact the School Office for further information or to discuss payment plans.
The guidelines contain information regarding detecting and treating head lice and eggs. If head lice or eggs are found on your child’s hair, you need to:
inform the school and advise when the treatment has started
inform parents or carers of your child’s friends so they too have the opportunity to detect and treat their children if necessary.
treat the hair again 7 days after initial treatment – the first treatment kills all lice; the second treatment kills the lice that may have hatched from eggs not killed by the first treatment.
Health regulations require that where a child has head lice, that child should not return to school until the day after appropriate treatment has started. Please note, this refers only to those children who have live head lice and does not refer to head lice eggs.
Please make sure that children’s hair is tied back to help prevent the spread of head lice. When long hair is tied back firmly or plaited, it is more difficult for the head lice to reach the scalp or hair shaft where they lay their eggs.
Children and teachers will be recognising this important date in Australian history in Week 7. Children will view videos featuring Eddie Betts, Buddy Franklin, Cyril Rioli, Paddy Ryder, Kevin Rudd, The Yung Warriors and Xavier Rudd.
Our children will also have the chance to learn about a Welcome to Country and how it differs from an Acknowledgement of Country.
As a school that prides itself on being “Many Cultures, One Community” this is an opportunity we are keen to teach and learn about Australian history and culture together.
Lisa Vandenbosch will be on (well earned) Long Service Leave until Monday 28th May. For any queries in her absence please contact the School Office or myself as I will be in the role of Acting Principal.
Thank you to all of our lovely mothers and families who made it to our High Tea. There was an overwhelming response to the event and we are so grateful to have had so many people involved. Children hold such a built in connection with their mother and it’s one we are glad to honour.
A special thanks to all of the staff involved in organising this event, especially Ms Spinucci and the Special Events Team. We look forward to hosting the event in 2019, which will include a few slight modifications to improve the day.
As part of our ongoing commitment to obtaining the best possible outcome for each child, Cranbourne Carlisle Primary School is able to offer a select group of Year Three children the opportunity to participate in a Basketball Bonding group.
This program is facilitated by myself, and will occur once a week for 10 sessions. The purpose of the group is to help members develop team work, respect, resilience and motivation. The Cranbourne Police will be sending some officers to a session to help create positive links within our community.
Session 1 was held today and the children were excited, keen and then a little tired! If any parents have a fitness qualification or passion and would like to be a guest coach at a session please come see me or someone at the School Office.
In preparation for our Afghan Day (June 20th) we have begun a Language Group catering to parents who speak Dari and Pashto. Currently this group consists of mothers from our Afghan community. We are happy to give much of the decision making power for Afghan Day and the Language Group to our Year 5 & 6 children. This opportunity is building up their leadership skills as well as valuing their contribution to our school community. This is giving the children a chance to express their opinion and the power and will to make decisions.
Our current enrolment details show that nearly a quarter of the children at our school come from Afghan backgrounds. The upcoming celebration will follow Ramadan (15th May – 14th June), a religious custom many of our school community will be observing. This celebration time is known as Eid and we hope to see all of our community joining the festivities on June 20th.
