Cairnlea Park Primary School
Our Best Always

eSmart Accreditation

Our school is proud to announce we are now officially an eSmart school.

Since we first registered with the program, we have introduced many new policies and activities to improve the way our school manages cybersafety, bullying and cyberbullying.

We feel confident our students, staff and the wider school community are now well supported to be smart, safe and responsible users of digital technology.

We encourage everyone in the school community to continue to uphold and promote eSmart behaviours, at school and at home. If you are aware of any incidents of bullying, cyberbullying or risky online behaviour, please contact the Principal or our eSmart coordinator.


2017 Online Booklist Ordering Information

This year Cairnlea Park Primary School will be offering the online ordering system for payment of the 2017 student book packs and essential educational items, with our stationery supplier Officemax.

Unfortunately, due to the Department of Education’s change in school’s funding, the school cannot bear the cost of student book packs and essential educational items that was offered in 2016, to parents who held a Healthcare or Pension card.

Therefore, ALL PARENTS will need to do online ordering for their child/ren’s 2017 book pack and essential educational items. We have managed however to keep the cost down to $150 for book pack and essential educational items which includes class materials, software and an incursion program.

Ordering can ONLY be made through the Officemax website. The online ordering system is much easier for parents with your child/ren’s book pack delivered by Australia Post to your home or nominated address. If you are not home, notification will be left by Australia Post to pick up your parcel from the post office. Also there will be no processing fee charged.

More detailed information of dates and procedure will be sent home to parents as well as being be posted on tiqbiz and in the newsletter. If you require any more information please contact myself or the administration staff.

Italian Day

Buongiorno a tutti!

Italian Day is on again this year and it will take place on Wednesday the 12th of October!

On this special day students will be involved in Italian activities for the whole day. ‘The Melbourne School of Tarantella’ will be performing a dancing show where students will learn the historical and cultural background of the Tarantella and an easy exciting dance routine.

We encourage all students to come to school dressed up representing an Italian icon, such as Pinocchio, a gondoliere, a famous Italian artist, scientist or inventor, a popular Italian car, Italian food, a chef, Mona Lisa, la Befana, etc. Just use your imagination and get some inspiration from Italian culture and folklore!

If students do not have a costume we encourage them to wear something with the Italian colours of green, white and red.

As a special treat, a gelati van will be at the school during recess and lunch time. The cost is $3.50 per serve and it can be purchased directly on the day. The flavour is a delicious rainbow!

The ice cream contains water, cane sugar, glucose (corn), corn starch, acid (330), colour (102, 110, 142), vegetable gum (412, 415, 410), emulsifier (471). The cone contains wheat flour, wheaten cornflour, vegetable oil, emulsifier [lecithin from soy (322)], sodium bicarbonate, salt and natural colours. We can also offer gelato in a cup for the same price for children that are coeliac.
