Student reports will be sent home during the last week of term, however this year due to an industrial dispute between the Australian Education Union (AEU) and the state government, there will be no written comments in the reports if the teacher is an AEU member. Therefore the reports will be as follows:
• If you child’s teacher is an AEU member, their report will be:
1. Your child’s assessment against the Victorian Essential Learning Standards (VELS)
2. An attendance report for your child.
• If your child’s teacher is not an AEU member, their reports will be as they have been in the past, assessment against the VELS, written comments and an attendance report.
EFTPOS is now available at the office, however there is no cash out. MasterCard or Visa only. $20 minimum per student per activity.
Many thanks to those families who have already donated so generously to our food drive for the Salvation Army at Christmas. The (non-perishable) food collected will be distributed to those families in the Deer Park area who are finding the going a bit tough at this time of the year. If you have yet to make a donation, all we ask is one item PER FAMILY. That would mean we would be able to donate OVER 700 food items for distribution. What a wonderful way to demonstrate our first school rule: “Be Kind”. Please place any donations in the box in the school foyer.
The school bus will again operate in 2013 for families who live in the designated collection areas. Families who currently use the service have the option to continue using the bus, and then other families are offered a place depending on the number of vacancies.
Families who would like to use the service can collect an application form from the office or download it from our website, www.cairnleaparkps.vic.edu.au in the General Information section, School Bus link, complete it and return it to school. A list will be made in the order we receive it, and those who do not get a place and are in the collection areas will be placed on a waiting list. These can be emailed to school at firstname.lastname@example.org with 2013 Bus Application in the subject box.
