If you have a child who enjoys going online, then you have most likely heard of the game Fortnite. This is a game rated M and is recommended for children 12 years or older, but no proof of age is required. As a school we would like to provide some of the following links to help parents understand what their children are playing, to consider if this is something they are comfortable with.
At Cranbourne Carlisle we follow the eSmart philosophy and therefore believe the interactions children have on the internet are extremely important and that adults should be aware that cyberbullying can have a damaging impact on a child, their friends and their family.

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 bandsWrist 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 SizzleOn 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.
Today we introduce a new section to our website, KidKorner
KidKorner is run by our Child eSmart Team (Year 4 – Tara, Year 5 – Sanchit, Year 6 – Jude). They will be blogging about their school experiences and modelling smart, safe and responsible use of the internet. The page can always be found in Enrichment > Multimedia > KidKorner.
