Collection Drive – Cranbourne Lost Dogs Home

Hi I’m Brooke in Year 6 and I am very passionate about supporting organisations that are working on combatting animal cruelty and improving the lives of animals. I have taken my ideas to School Council and I have their support to put a call out to our school community.

During the months of July and August we will be collecting old blankets, old towels and dog food donations for The Lost Dogs Home in Cranbourne. There will be a donation drop off box in the front office. We will also have a collection tin at the office where you can donate your spare change to support the RSPCA.

Thank you in advance for your kindness in helping to improve the lives of animals.

CCPS B+Online

The internet is a fantastic resource for information, entertainment and social networking. It is important to understand that things can sometimes go wrong in this space and that there are ways to minimise the risk or harm involved. CCPS B+Online will allow children to report things that make them feel uncomfortable or that upset them and the school will find the best person to support them.

Cyber bullying refers to Internet bullying. Cyber bullying is a form of violence that can do lasting harm to young people. Bullying statistics show that cyber bullying is a serious problem, especially among teens. By being more aware of cyber bullying, teens and adults can help to fight it. Cyber bullying affects many adolescents and teens on a daily basis. Cyber bullying involves using technology, like smart phones and the Internet, to bully or harass another person.

Cyber bullying can take many forms:
1. Sending mean messages or threats to a person’s email account or smart phone
2. Spreading rumours online or through texts
3. Posting hurtful or threatening messages on social networking sites or web pages
4. Stealing a person’s account information to break into their account and send damaging messages
5. Pretending to be someone else online to hurt another person
6. Taking unflattering pictures of a person and spreading them on the Internet
7. Sexting, or circulating sexually suggestive pictures or messages about a person

The CCPS B+Online form can always be found on the ICT blog or by clicking here

Camp update!

Dear Parents of our intrepid Year Six campers,

The buses are due to arrive back to school today at 4.00pm, instead of 5.15pm as was originally planned. Children and staff have had a wonderful time and thankfully escaped most of the horrible weather that we have been experiencing here at home. I know they’ll be tired, but keen to share stories of their adventures with you, so your prompt collection would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards,
Patricia Wallace
Assistant Principal

ANZAC Day Public Holiday

Monday 25 April is ANZAC Day – a solemn day of remembrance of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps soldiers who fought and died in Gallipoli in 1915. We also remember all soldiers who have fought and died for their country in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations, as well as the contributions and suffering of all those who have served.

ANZAC Day is a public holiday in Australia and therefore there will be no school on this day.
