Safety around our school!

As the colder weather hits and our enrolments grow, the roads around our school are becoming increasingly chaotic during the morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up times and children are sometimes put at risk.

Children are vulnerable road users and are at higher risk in traffic because of their size and inability to judge speed and distance.

When in school zones, please observe the following guidelines to reduce risk to children:

  • ALWAYS cross at the school crossings!!!
  • BE PATIENT – observe the directions of the School Crossing Supervisor.
  • DO NOT park on footpaths or over driveways. This causes many problems for our neighbours and they will contact the City of Casey to complain if access to their property is blocked
  • DO NOT use the staff car park to pick up or drop off children. The car park is for staff vehicles only.
  • NEVER double park. This reduces driver visibility, causes congestion and puts children at risk.
  • NEVER call your child across the road.
  • ALWAYS encourage your child to enter and exit the car from the kerb.
  • REMEMBER children are full of surprises! Expect the unexpected.
  • ALWAYS drive at or below 40km/h.

Our children’s safety and well-being is our most important priority so it is wonderful to have two Crossing Supervisors to help our children cross what are, at times, very busy roads. A children’s crossing is a legal crossing when two flags are in place. Children and adults who are crossing at a children’s crossing must comply with the supervisor’s directions and must stand behind the line until the supervisor blows the whistle, indicating that it is safe to cross. The crossing supervisor will always wait until it is safe before they walk out and blow their whistle.

Cars are not allowed to park on or around the crossing.  The crossing area is usually signed NO STOPPING.  The clearance around the crossing is for the safety of pedestrians.

REMEMBER – ALWAYS CROSS AT THE CHILDREN’S CROSSING WHEN IT IS IN OPERATION.

By following the rules around school zones we can work together to ensure the safety of our children.

Parent Opinion Survey 2017

WE WANT OUR PARENTS TO TELL US WHAT THEY THINK

Cranbourne Carlisle is conducting a survey to find out what parents think of our school. The Parent Opinion Survey is an annual survey offered by the Department of Education and Training that is conducted amongst a sample of randomly selected parents at each school.

It is designed to assist our school in gaining an understanding of parents’ perception of school climate, student engagement and relationships with our parent community. Our school will use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies.

The survey will be conducted online by ORIMA Research Pty Ltd and only takes 15 minutes to complete. The survey can be accessed via desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile at any convenient time within the fieldwork period from Monday 7 August to Sunday 27 August.

Approximately 30 % of parents will be invited to participate in this year’s survey. All responses to the survey are anonymous.

The online survey is available in English, Arabic, Vietnamese, Mandarin and Hindi.

Survey language guides will be provided in a range of languages including Albanian, Bengali, Burmese, Cantonese, Dari, Filipino, Greek, Gujarati, Indonesian, Japanese, Karen, Khmer, Korean, Macedonian, Malayalam, Pashto, Persian, Punjabi, Russian, Serbian, Sinhalese, Somali, Spanish, Tagalog, Tamil, Telugu, Turkish or Urdu.

The survey results will be reported back to our school at the end of September.

Birthday Celebrations

At Cranbourne Carlisle, we love to celebrate birthdays! It is a joy to see children share treats with their classmates (and teachers!) on these special days.

However, sometimes treats sent to school for sharing can have serious repercussions for children with allergies or medical conditions. A wrapped lolly, such as a lollipop, Freddo Frog or mini packets of  Smarties, may be sent to school by parents/carers to celebrate a special occasion. Please do not send whole cakes as these are very difficult for teachers to manage. These will be given to the children at the end of the day to take home for parent/carer permission to eat or discard.

Parents are asked never to provide nuts or products containing nuts for any reason due to the serious risk these foods pose for other children with life threatening allergies.
