Parent Opinion Survey


Our school 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. It is designed to assist schools in gaining an understanding of parents’ perceptions of school climate, student behaviour and student engagement. Our school will use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies.

Approximately 30 per cent of parents will be invited to participate in this year’s survey. All responses to the survey are anonymous. This year the Parent Opinion Survey will be conducted from Monday 23rd July to Sunday 26th August.

The survey will be conducted online, only takes 10-15 minutes to complete, and can be accessed at any convenient time within the fieldwork period on desktop computers, laptops, tablets or smartphones. The online survey will be available in a range of languages other than English. These include: Arabic, Vietnamese, Mandarin, Chin (hakha), Hindi, Japanese, Somali, Turkish, Punjabi and Greek.

The survey results will be reported back to the school at the end of September. Results will be posted on this website as soon as they are available.

Please speak to your child’s teacher if you would like more information.


T3 Parent Activity

Click on the above image to download our Term 3 Parent Activity calendar to stay up to date with the life of the school.

We are hoping to get more parents who are willing to assist with our Family Learning Club, anyone up early to help with Breakfast Club, parents wanting to participate in Adult Art classes, those wishing to get involved with the Fitness Group and anyone wanting to help plan Polyfest Day. Your involvement matters to us.

Afghan Day

As a school, we believe that all cultures are valued and bring a unique view of life. For 2018 we have planned three Cultural Connectionz celebrations, Afghan Day, Polyfest and African Pride Day. We are excited to kick off the festivities with Afghan Day which will involve performances and speeches from our school community, Cranbourne East Secondary, Cranbourne Secondary, Lyndhurst Secondary College and CMY.

As a school we commemorated ANZAC Day through our attendance at the Cranbourne RSL memorial ceremony, we observed Reconciliation Week and are beginning implementation of the Marrung Aboriginal Education Plan. The Australian culture is highly valued and the Cultural Connectionz are a small gesture to acknowledge the different ways people celebrate life. We are spending these days highlighting some alternative traditions. The aim of these days is to gain a clearer insight into the many different cultures that make up our school community.

As a school we will be seeking your input for our 2019 Cultural Connectionz through a survey that will be available later in this year. We will have events held in Term 2, 3 and 4.

Lastly we would like to thank the Sidney Myer Foundation for helping fund our Cultural Connectionz celebration days. I would also like to thank the CCPS School Council for their support of the events.
