It’s time to hunt out your Sunsmart approved hat.
We are a Sunsmart school and all members of our school community are required to wear a
bucket or broad brimmed hat whenever participating in outdoor activities from the
beginning of September until the end of May.
To protect our students from sunburn, our school rule is, “No hat, No play!” Students are
also encouraged to apply sunscreen and to wear sunglasses when outside.
Thank you for your support in this matter.
The Music Bus
On Thursday 11 October The Music Bus will be visiting our school and children in all classes
will have the opportunity to visit the bus. After the visit to the bus, the children will bring
home information about lessons that are available.
On a user pay system, The Music Bus offers modern and rock-style courses in Keyboard,
Drums, Guitar, Singing, Ukulele and Rock Band, using well-known songs to engage students
at all ability levels.
Parents are invited to view The Music Bus before and after school and to chat with the
teachers from The Music Bus.
Bulla Hooptime Basketball Competition
On Monday 3rd September, Cranbourne Park Primary School fielded 2 mixed
teams in the Bulla Hooptime Basketball Competition. One of the teams
finished on top of their division and made it through to the semi-finals.
Unfortunately they come up against a more skilled Trinity Primary School. Both
teams played a total of 5 games and 6 games respectively. The teamwork and
intensity were a highlight from the day. The teams were an absolute pleasure
to take and were great ambassadors for our school.
I would like to congratulate every one of the representatives that participated
for their passion and determination on the day.
Well done Parkers!
Respect: For ourselves, our learning, our school and each other.
