Year 6 Camp

Well done to our Year 6 children for their fantastic behaviour on school camp at Mill Valley Ranch. The children displayed great teamwork, perseverance, empathy, and risk taking over the course of the week which included many children’s first experience riding horses, eating new foods and working with children they wouldn’t normally spend time with. As a staff we observed how mature the children were being and how harmonious the group was. If your child wants to take their shoes off and throw them at a water bottle you may have to get them to explain the game!

I managed to join in on the fun on Wednesday and had a fantastic day but was very grateful to go home to my warm bed at the end of the day and get a good night’s sleep.

A special thank you to Ms Mepstead, Ms Dunstan, Ms Greenough, Ms Davis, Mr Mac and our two very brave parent volunteers Paul Seeley and Rebecca Parker for giving up their time to facilitate this camp and an extra special thanks to Ms Dunstan for organising the event.

TTFM Parent Survey

Welcome back for Term 2. We begin by providing a chance for parent feedback. Tell Them From Me is an online survey system devised by The Learning Bar that helps schools capture the views of children, teachers and parents. The TTFM Parent Survey link is now open for all parents and carers in the CCPS community. All responses are anonymous and help create a broad set of data for us to consider. This survey will provide the school with a range of information that will be combined with information from our teacher and children that will help drive decision making in the school moving forward.

The survey can be completed online by clicking on the image below or by pasting the following link into your browser www.tellthemfromme.com/ccps18 

 

Soccer Challenge for all Dads

We are putting together a team to challenge the Dandenong Team of Dads. This will be a fun opportunity for our parents to get together and represent our school community. A time slot has not been locked in but the match will be held on Sunday May 6th.

A basic kit will be provided thanks to the Casey Comets, ensure to bring soccer boots, water bottle etc.

Please spread the word so we can fill our team. Any further enquiries please call the School Office or contact Mr Cuss.

Harmony Day Dance Performances

A huge congratulations to all of the children who performed on Harmony Day last week. Here are some highlights of the dance performances. There will be more performance opportunities at our Afghan Day, Polyfest and African Pride Day later in the year.

Unfortunately we had some copyright issues with a few of the songs featured in  the performances so we have had to cut down the video. The link is now working.

Harmony Day


We enjoyed a fantastic Harmony Day and look forward to continuing the celebrations at our Cultural Connectionz celebrations later in the year:

Afghan Celebration – June 20th (Term 2)
Polyfest – September 7th (Term 3)
African Pride Day – November 23rd (Term 4)

If you would like to be involved with the organisation of these days or perform, please contact the School Office.

Senior Athletics Day

Congratulations to all of the children who participated in today’s Senior School Athletics Day. Well done to Mr McDonald for coordinating a fabulous day, given children the opportunity to participate in organised sporting competitions, pushing themselves past their limits. We would like to extend our appreciation to all families who supported today’s events and finally thank the teachers for their enthusiasm throughout the day!

Subway orders

Subway lunch orders are offered at Cranbourne Carlisle every week. Subway has provided envelopes for ordering which must be handed in, with correct money, to the class teacher on Wednesday mornings. Parents need to complete the order by selecting the fillings that children would like in their lunch. The price of $5 includes a six inch sub and a drink (water or apple juice). Orders may be upgraded to a foot long sub for an additional $2.50. Only food items listed will be available and only orders placed via the classroom, in the correct envelope, will be accepted.
Completed envelopes with correct payment need to be handed to class teachers on Wednesday mornings. No late orders can be accepted. Lunches will be delivered to the School Office and distributed to classes each Thursday. Extra envelopes are available from class teachers or the School Office.

The Resilience Project Parent Night

Thank you to all of the parents who made it to our Parent Information Night presented by The Resilience Project. Hugh van Cuylenburg presented for the evening touching on the importance of gratitude, empathy and mindfulness. We were challenged to specifically spend less time devoted to our devices and live in the moment. Here are some comments from our very own parent community survey:

“The most challenging part for me is to control the mobile phone addiction”

“It was an eye opener, I’m so grateful to the school for such a session”

“I want to communicate more with my children now”

“I see how hard some people in the world have it over what I have”

“I need to change a few things at home to reflect these thoughts, as kids observe and follow parents”

The school community will continue to prioritise positive mental health through the use of mindfulness and The Resilience Project approach.
