CSEF Information and Application

Every Victorian child should have access to the world of learning opportunities that exist beyond the classroom. The Camps, Sports and Excursions Fund helps ensure that no students will miss out on the opportunity to join their classmates for important, educational and fun activities. It is part of making Victoria the Education State and the Government’s commitment to breaking the link between a student’s background and their outcomes.

New Flagged Crossing

Over the summer holidays Brimbank Council have installed a children’s crossing on the south side of Shepperd Way. Currently this crossing is not manned by a crossing supervisor, however when the crossing is flagged all the same road rules apply.

I ask everyone to follow the road rules pertaining to flagged children’s crossing, 40kmh speed limits and parking regulations around the school.

Children are especially vulnerable around vehicles and roads due to their size and capabilities.

  • When walking with your children make sure you are using the school or pedestrian crossings rather than taking potentially unsafe shortcuts.
  • Talk with your children about the importance of stopping and looking both ways before you cross any road.

Always demonstrate responsible and safe behaviours when driving, as a passenger or while walking anywhere around vehicles and roads.

The school is in regular communication with Brimbank Council about making pedestrian crossings around the school safer for all users.

Hopefully it won’t be long before Brimbank Council agrees to provide a crossing supervisor for the new crossing.

Lunch Orders

1. Please print your child’s name & room number clearly on a paper bag.

2. Place the correct money inside the bag. (If your order has change, it will be taped inside the bag, please let your child know.) Please do not staple or tape lunch bags, instead just fold them.

November … “It’s Not Great to Be Late” month

November is “It’s Not Great to Be Late” month …
Each day at CPPS we have a number of students arriving late to school, sometimes up to 30 minutes past the commencement time of 8.55! We acknowledge that getting children ready for school can be a difficult task, parking around the school can be horrendous, and weather plays a part, too. However, it is vitally important for your child to be at school before the music starts each day so that they can be settled, make important social connections, be organised for the day and feel relaxed.
Now that the weather is slowly improving, we ask that all families make a concerted effort in November to arrive at school well before the starting time of 8.55am, so that your child can play, feel organised, and be ready for the day ahead.
The grade with the fewest latecomers in the month of November will be rewarded with a casual clothes day in December JUST FOR THEM!!!! Please help your child to be ready for school by getting bags and uniforms organised the night before, parking away from the school and walking the last little bit, and developing a sense of punctuality in all aspects of their life.
We look forward to seeing everyone at school on time !!!!!!
