Camping Program at CCPS

Years Three, Four and Five children are very excited about their camping experiences happening in Terms Three and Four.

The numbers are now final for the Year Three overnight camp to Manyung in Mt Eliza and we are delighted that so many children are attending.

There are still some places available for both the Year Four urban camp in Melbourne and the Year Five camp to Grantville Lodge. Deposits must be made by the end of Term Two in order to secure a place.

Please contact the School Office for further information or to discuss payment plans.

Happy camping!!

HEAD LICE!

There are quite a few children in our school with recurring head lice at the moment. We are asking for all families to check children’s hair this week so we can stop the spread!!

If eggs or live lice are found, please treat children’s hair. See the following information from the Victorian Department of Health:
Treating and controlling head lice

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.

National Reconciliation Week

Children and teachers will be recognising this important date in Australian history in Week 7. Children will view videos featuring Eddie Betts, Buddy Franklin, Cyril Rioli, Paddy Ryder, Kevin Rudd, The Yung Warriors and Xavier Rudd.

Our children will also have the chance to learn about a Welcome to Country and how it differs from an Acknowledgement of Country.

As a school that prides itself on being “Many Cultures, One Community” this is an opportunity we are keen  to teach and learn about Australian history and culture together.

Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund (CSEF)

CSEF applications close at the end of Term 2.

If you have a health care card and haven’t applied for CSEF at our school before please see Michelle at the office to complete an application.

You will need to complete an application if you had a child start in Foundation this year as he/she will need to be added to your family details.

Announcement

Lisa Vandenbosch will be on (well earned) Long Service Leave until Monday 28th May. For any queries in her absence please contact the School Office or myself as I will be in the role of Acting Principal.

Basketball Bonding

As part of our ongoing commitment to obtaining the best possible outcome for each child, Cranbourne Carlisle Primary School is able to offer a select group of Year Three children the opportunity to participate in a Basketball Bonding group.

This program is facilitated by myself, and will occur once a week for 10 sessions. The purpose of the group is to help members develop team work, respect, resilience and motivation. The Cranbourne Police will be sending some officers to a session to help create positive links within our community.

Session 1 was held today and the children were excited, keen and then a little tired! If any parents have a fitness qualification or passion and would like to be a guest coach at a session please come see me or someone at the School Office.

Soccer Match Cancelled

SOCCER GAME CANCELLED

Unfortunately the Dandenong Dad’s team have had to pull out. Most likely they were worried they were going to lose!

Thanks for offering to play and hopefully you will consider playing should we organise a different time later in the year.

ANZAC Day

On Wednesday 25 April five very proud Year Six children represented our school at the Cranbourne RSL 2018 ANZAC Day memorial service. It was a very moving service with some outstanding speeches and one in which we were honoured to be involved in. It was also encouraging to see our school community represented so heavily in the crowd.

Services like these are an opportunity for the younger generation to grow a rich appreciation for those who have come before them, especially those who have served to protect this nation.
