Senior Athletics Day

Congratulations to all of the children who participated in today’s Senior School Athletics Day. Well done to Mr McDonald for coordinating a fabulous day, given children the opportunity to participate in organised sporting competitions, pushing themselves past their limits. We would like to extend our appreciation to all families who supported today’s events and finally thank the teachers for their enthusiasm throughout the day!

Subway orders

Subway lunch orders are offered at Cranbourne Carlisle every week. Subway has provided envelopes for ordering which must be handed in, with correct money, to the class teacher on Wednesday mornings. Parents need to complete the order by selecting the fillings that children would like in their lunch. The price of $5 includes a six inch sub and a drink (water or apple juice). Orders may be upgraded to a foot long sub for an additional $2.50. Only food items listed will be available and only orders placed via the classroom, in the correct envelope, will be accepted.
Completed envelopes with correct payment need to be handed to class teachers on Wednesday mornings. No late orders can be accepted. Lunches will be delivered to the School Office and distributed to classes each Thursday. Extra envelopes are available from class teachers or the School Office.

The Resilience Project Parent Night

Thank you to all of the parents who made it to our Parent Information Night presented by The Resilience Project. Hugh van Cuylenburg presented for the evening touching on the importance of gratitude, empathy and mindfulness. We were challenged to specifically spend less time devoted to our devices and live in the moment. Here are some comments from our very own parent community survey:

“The most challenging part for me is to control the mobile phone addiction”

“It was an eye opener, I’m so grateful to the school for such a session”

“I want to communicate more with my children now”

“I see how hard some people in the world have it over what I have”

“I need to change a few things at home to reflect these thoughts, as kids observe and follow parents”

The school community will continue to prioritise positive mental health through the use of mindfulness and The Resilience Project approach.
