National eSmart Week

This week is National eSmart Week, where we are promoting the smart, safe and responsible use of the internet. As part of our whole school celebration we have eSmart wrist bands for sale and will be having a sausage sizzle on Friday. Any profits made will contribute towards purchasing cyber safety apps and programs such as the Digital Licence from the Alannah and Madeline Foundation.

eSmart wrist bands Wrist bands will be on sale all week for $1.50 and will be available in S, M and L size. Children are especially encouraged to wear their wrist bands on Friday for ‘Purple and Yellow day’. Wrist bands will be purchased in the classroom where senior children will visit each morning to sell them. They can be worn all week but we want everyone wearing them on Purple and Yellow day on Friday.

Sausage Sizzle On Friday 8 September we will be having a sausage sizzle for children. Sausages will be $1.50 each and made available during lunch time. Beef and vegetarian sausages will be available. NOTE: There will not be pre-orders, so children are encouraged to bring a good sized snack also. Classes will be able to come out anytime from 12:30pm.

At Cranbourne Carlisle Primary School we are committed to the smart, safe and responsible use of technology. We would like to offer parents and families with a series of videos and links to help educate our community on the positives and negatives of the online world.

Here is a short video on the issue of cyberbullying and the four short tips to help your children. If you have a child in Years 4-6 you may wish to view this video together and discuss the four tips together.


Stay tuned for CCPS Cyber Safety Tips #2…
