We are excited to say our new website is nearly complete! The site will feature brand new class blogs that will allow parents and families the chance to stay up to date with all things in the class. Until the new website is finalised we will continue to update you on all things CCPS right here.

Final day!

Dear families and friends, a heartfelt thank you for your support during 2018. Enjoy the holiday break and we look forward to working with you in 2019

It’s that time of year again! The school year is almost over. The Christmas holidays are just around the corner. Children generally want to plunge into holidays, leaving schoolwork, timetables and teachers behind. That’s only natural. But before they get too far into holiday mode, parents can consider how they can round out the year, and bring it to a close. Children of all ages benefit from parental recognition of their achievements and successes as it sets the stage for the coming school year. Here are a few ideas to help you close off the old year to prepare for the year ahead:

1. Discuss the highlights and the lowlights of the year.|
2. Celebrate improvement and success.
3. Show appreciation to those who assisted you along the way.
4. Look forward to a fresh start.
5. Now relax and have a great break.
So it’s a wrap!



Due to the heavy rain and thunderstorms forecast for Thursday, we are moving the Christmas Market to Tuesday 18 December. The market will run from 4pm – 7pm.

We understand this may be an inconvenience to some families at this busy stage of the year but have made this change to allow our children to enjoy the market experience.

The Christmas Concert will still take place on Thursday 13 December at 9am in the gym, regardless of the weather.

Rain, Rain, Go Away…

Whilst we are looking forward to the Christmas Market, a change of date to Tuesday 18 December MIGHT take place due to the predicted weather for Thursday. We are monitoring the situation closely and will confirm the information as soon as a decision is made. A change of date would allow us to enjoy the festivities without the hassle of umbrellas and gumboots.

The Christmas Concert will still take place on Thursday 13 December at 9am in the gym, regardless of the weather.

Should any change take place we will communicate it here on our website, through the before and after school announcements and on each year level blog.


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.

Important Information

  • On Monday, Wednesday & Thursday the year 6 children will be selling icy poles (zooper doopers) for $1 each. The Year 6 children will come to each class and collect the money and children will get the icy pole during lunch eating time.
  • Book Club is due back on Tuesday. Don’t miss out!
  • Sushi Day is Tuesday 4 December. Place orders on the website by 9.30am on Monday 3 December. Click on the picture below to go to the website!

Foundation 2019 Information Evening

This evening, we welcome parents and carers of Foundation children enrolled to attend Cranbourne Carlisle Primary School in 2019.

We look forward to meeting with families new to our school, sharing information and beginning a positive partnership to give children the best chance for a successful start to their primary school education.


There have been a number of children returning to school too soon after illnesses involving vomiting and/or diarrhoea. This means that children may still be infectious and could spread illness throughout the school. It is very important that sick children have adequate time at home to recover from their illness and do not return too soon, putting others at risk of also becoming ill.

Children with vomiting or diarrhoea should:

  • rest at home and not attend school. Children should be excluded from attending for at least 24 hours after symptoms stop, unless otherwise advised by a medical professional
  • wash hands thoroughly with soap and running water for 10 seconds after using the toilet
  • drink plenty of clear fluids to prevent dehydration. Avoid undiluted fruit juice and soft drinks as they may increase dehydration and diarrhoea. Rehydration drinks that replace fluids and salts are available from chemists.

Please keep sick children as far away from other people as you can!

See you doctor for advice as soon as possible if symptoms continue.
