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.

Fortnite

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.

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.

Year 6 Camp

Well done to our Year 6 children for their fantastic behaviour on school camp at Mill Valley Ranch. The children displayed great teamwork, perseverance, empathy, and risk taking over the course of the week which included many children’s first experience riding horses, eating new foods and working with children they wouldn’t normally spend time with. As a staff we observed how mature the children were being and how harmonious the group was. If your child wants to take their shoes off and throw them at a water bottle you may have to get them to explain the game!

I managed to join in on the fun on Wednesday and had a fantastic day but was very grateful to go home to my warm bed at the end of the day and get a good night’s sleep.

A special thank you to Ms Mepstead, Ms Dunstan, Ms Greenough, Ms Davis, Mr Mac and our two very brave parent volunteers Paul Seeley and Rebecca Parker for giving up their time to facilitate this camp and an extra special thanks to Ms Dunstan for organising the event.

TTFM Parent Survey

Welcome back for Term 2. We begin by providing a chance for parent feedback. Tell Them From Me is an online survey system devised by The Learning Bar that helps schools capture the views of children, teachers and parents. The TTFM Parent Survey link is now open for all parents and carers in the CCPS community. All responses are anonymous and help create a broad set of data for us to consider. This survey will provide the school with a range of information that will be combined with information from our teacher and children that will help drive decision making in the school moving forward.

The survey can be completed online by clicking on the image below or by pasting the following link into your browser www.tellthemfromme.com/ccps18 

 

Soccer Challenge for all Dads

We are putting together a team to challenge the Dandenong Team of Dads. This will be a fun opportunity for our parents to get together and represent our school community. A time slot has not been locked in but the match will be held on Sunday May 6th.

A basic kit will be provided thanks to the Casey Comets, ensure to bring soccer boots, water bottle etc.

Please spread the word so we can fill our team. Any further enquiries please call the School Office or contact Mr Cuss.

Harmony Day Dance Performances

A huge congratulations to all of the children who performed on Harmony Day last week. Here are some highlights of the dance performances. There will be more performance opportunities at our Afghan Day, Polyfest and African Pride Day later in the year.

Unfortunately we had some copyright issues with a few of the songs featured in  the performances so we have had to cut down the video. The link is now working.
