Carlisle Primary School
Number 20 ~ Week 8 ~ Term 4 ~ 2nd December 2014
Dear Parents and Carer’s,
This is my final newsletter for the year and I want to take this opportunity to thank all
students, parents/carers and staff for what has been the most successful and
productive of my three years as principal of Carlisle PS. The school is in an excellent
position to consolidate its already high status as a school with innovative programs
and committed staff.
The school has a Pre-Service Teacher partnership with Edith Cowan University and
has been asked to form a similar partnership with the University of Western Australia.
We also support a minor end-of-year program for first year student teachers with
Notre Dame University. These partnerships are a strong commendation of the quality
and expertise of our teaching staff.
In 2015 the specialist program will be modified to include Science as a school focus.
Specialist teachers are: Miss Tuxworth, Visual Arts and ICT; Ms Prudnicki, Music/
Drama; Mr Hart, Physical Education and Science; Ms Heald, Japanese Language.
Miss Guerra continues as the English Alternative Language specialist teacher and
coordinates the new and popular Carlisle kitchen.
National Survey
All Australian schools are required to conduct a satisfaction survey every two years
from 2014. There are three survey groups: Students Years 5-7; Parents and Carers;
Staff. This is an online survey with log-in procedures. You will be issued with a log-in
number to begin the survey, however that log-in does not identify the user and the
survey is fully confidential and anonymous. It is a very short multiple choice survey,
you may use a school computer, or a hard copy can be provided if required. Please
update your email address with us by sending an email to
[email protected] with the name of your child in the subject line.
It is very important that we have your support in completing the survey.
Parent/Carer Requests
There have been a number of requests made and considered. Most requests were for
authentic reasons, however if you are disappointed when school begins in 2015, I will
be pleased to meet with you and explain why your request was declined.
Class Lists There will be no information regarding teacher and student class
placements prior to 2015. This is because families sometimes move out of the area
during the holidays and classes change. Class lists will be displayed at the school
after 2.00pm, Friday 29th January 2015.
Coming Events
Presentation Night Remember to bring your chairs or blankets, there will be a special
blanket area in front of chairs and a dedicated area for taking photos.
Reports and Class Parties Class party day in the main school is Tuesday 16th
December. The teachers of Kindergarten and Pre-primary classes will inform parents
of their plans. Reports will be sent home on Tuesday 16th December.
On behalf of the staff I wish you all the compliments of the season, a joyful Christmas
and a Happy New Year and trust you will enjoy the summer holidays with your
children. I will be enjoying a winter Christmas and New Year in the UK and Austria
with some of my children and grandchildren.
First day for students Monday 2nd February 2015.

A Sport Report
Today the Cupcakes and Olympia 10 will be versing each other in cricket. Cupcakes will be batting first and Olympia 10 will be fielding.
Blair and Branai will be batting and score with a big swing, but sadly Branai and Blaire got out. Now, Vince and Tahlia will be batting
and so far they have two runs. Cupcakes are on 20 with Olympia 10 still to bat. Ooh, close to being out, but not quite. Now, both teams
have to swap. Batting first for Olympia 10 are Jack and Lucky. Wow, four runs already! Now they hit another four. Will they ever get
out? The score so far is Cupcakes with 21 and Olympia 10 with 22. This is a tough game, but so far it looks like Olympia 10 might win.
Now, Laura and Shrishti are in to bat and trying to get a higher score. No luck. Now it’s Mac turn and he scores with 6 runs! It was a
tough game, but in the end Olympia 10 won by 17 runs.
