Welcome back to another term at Cranbourne Primary School.
I hope everyone has had a wonderful and restful break. I have thoroughly enjoyed hearing stories about all the interest things our students have been up to. Like the students, our teachers are excited to get back into learning and spending time with their students.
I would like to congratulate students on how quickly they have settled into their learning routines. At the start of each term, teachers spend time redeveloping classroom expectations and reminding students about how to demonstrate our PRIDE values. I have seen students demonstrating these each and every day as I walk around the school. We have a wonderful team of responsible students here at Cranbourne Primary School, and they should be congratulated.
Over the coming term, expect to see more camps, incursions and excursions. We recognise that great experiences are an important part of a child's time at school, and we aim to combine high quality learning with huge dollops of engagement. If you have ideas for experiences and activities, I encourage you to talk with your classroom teacher!
Parent communication is important to us. Remember that your child's classroom teacher is the best person to come to with any queries about learning, behaviour or wellbeing. If you feel your concerns have not been adequately addressed by the classroom teacher, talk to the office to organise a meeting with myself.
A reminder that the school has many opportunities for parents to volunteer for literacy intervention. This is a great opportunity to be trained in the latest approaches to help children with reading and students to stay caught up. Whether to help the school, add to your resume, hone your skills to help your own child or to build your social circle, keep an eye out for our information/training sessions.
One of the other social ways to support the school is to join the Community Links team. These parents have a lot of fun while also planning special events to help the school and students. Each term, expect to see a working bee, a special lunch for students and an evening community night. If you are interested in coming along, the office can provide contact details. Whether just popping in for a chat or throwing yourself into the committee, the school loves and supports our Community Links team. Community Links also runs "Social Links" after school every second week. Keep an eye out for information to come along and let your students spend some extra time with their friends on the playground while you socialise with other parents.
Our Out of School Hours Care program is now up and running. To support our families we offer a much lower rate than surrouding centres, so I encourage you to check out the OSHC tab on the website.
A reminder to parents that Breakfast Club starts at 8:30 every day. Students who arrive prior to this will need to enrol in OSHC as the yard is unsupervised. The first bell goes at 8:50 for students to come into class.
I hope everyone has a wonderful term and is excited as I am!
