Principal’s blog | School culture

30 July 2019

Parents and carers, children and staff all share responsibility for ensuring that Cranbourne Carlisle Primary School is a positive, respectful, inclusive and safe school environment. Adults have a particular responsibility to be mindful of the way in which we conduct ourselves in and around the school, noting that we are the role models that impressionable children look to.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you who contribute to the positivity of our school community each and every week. Though I cannot thank each of you individually, I wish to assure you that your efforts do not go unnoticed. Just this past weekend many parents were involved in hosting a school council fundraiser at Bunnings. Time is precious, so this display of support for the school is highly valued.

This is also an opportune time for me to emphasise that my door is always open to discuss any concerns you may have, simply contact the School Office to schedule an appointment. There is an appropriate avenue to raise any grievances, concerns or constructive criticism. It saddens me when I hear of efforts to undermine our positive school culture by way of inaccurate or disparaging comments on social media or gossip, rather than addressing concerns with school staff directly. Thankfully, such instances are very rare.

I want to express my sincere appreciation for the cooperation and effort put forth by the parents and carers of Cranbourne Carlisle Primary School.

P.S I hope to see you at Parent Teacher Interviews or our whole school assembly on Wednesday 🙂
