Dear families and friends, a heartfelt thank you for your support during 2018. Enjoy the holiday break and we look forward to working with you in 2019
It’s that time of year again! The school year is almost over. The Christmas holidays are just around the corner. Children generally want to plunge into holidays, leaving schoolwork, timetables and teachers behind. That’s only natural. But before they get too far into holiday mode, parents can consider how they can round out the year, and bring it to a close. Children of all ages benefit from parental recognition of their achievements and successes as it sets the stage for the coming school year. Here are a few ideas to help you close off the old year to prepare for the year ahead:
1. Discuss the highlights and the lowlights of the year.| 2. Celebrate improvement and success. 3. Show appreciation to those who assisted you along the way. 4. Look forward to a fresh start. 5. Now relax and have a great break. So it’s a wrap!
Whilst we are looking forward to the Christmas Market, a change of date to Tuesday 18 December MIGHT take place due to the predicted weather for Thursday. We are monitoring the situation closely and will confirm the information as soon as a decision is made. A change of date would allow us to enjoy the festivities without the hassle of umbrellas and gumboots.
The Christmas Concert will still take place on Thursday 13 December at 9am in the gym, regardless of the weather.
Should any change take place we will communicate it here on our website, through the before and after school announcements and on each year level blog.
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.
On Monday, Wednesday & Thursday the year 6 children will be selling icy poles (zooper doopers) for $1 each. The Year 6 children will come to each class and collect the money and children will get the icy pole during lunch eating time.
Book Club is due back on Tuesday. Don’t miss out!

This evening, we welcome parents and carers of Foundation children enrolled to attend Cranbourne Carlisle Primary School in 2019.
We look forward to meeting with families new to our school, sharing information and beginning a positive partnership to give children the best chance for a successful start to their primary school education.
There have been a number of children returning to school too soon after illnesses involving vomiting and/or diarrhoea. This means that children may still be infectious and could spread illness throughout the school. It is very important that sick children have adequate time at home to recover from their illness and do not return too soon, putting others at risk of also becoming ill.
Children with vomiting or diarrhoea should:
rest at home and not attend school. Children should be excluded from attending for at least 24 hours after symptoms stop, unless otherwise advised by a medical professional
wash hands thoroughly with soap and running water for 10 seconds after using the toilet
drink plenty of clear fluids to prevent dehydration. Avoid undiluted fruit juice and soft drinks as they may increase dehydration and diarrhoea. Rehydration drinks that replace fluids and salts are available from chemists.
Please keep sick children as far away from other people as you can!
See you doctor for advice as soon as possible if symptoms continue.

It’s non-toxic, biodegradable, skin safe and environmentally friendly. Toxicological Risk Assessment and ingredient listings can be obtained from the School Office upon request. Students with asthma are advised to be careful in their decision to participate.
What to wear: A white top is best to see all the colours. Whilst the colour is washable it is best to wear clothes that you don’t mind getting ruined.
