Final Reminder for Tickets – Let’s Talk Resilience with Madame Pilote – TONIGHT!
Date: Tuesday 9 November 2021
Venue: Primary Forum, Carramar Campus
Please book your ticket using the following link: https://events.humanitix.com/mp2021
Resilience is a crucial skill to have. Throughout my education career I have seen first hand how more and more important it has become for children to develop this skill at a very young age. Students who develop resilience early in life have a better chance to successfully cope with the many challenges they will face in their future.
I would like to invite you to a one hour workshop where I will share with you some tips and findings I have come across over the years, to help children become more resilient. I have been particularly inspired by a book I read some time ago, called “The Danish Way of Parenting“.

Jump Rope for Heart 2021
Jump Rope for Heart is a fantastic physical activity and fundraising program that has been run by the Heart Foundation for over 36 years. It’s a great way for your child to keep fit and learn new skills, but it also helps raise funds for vital heart research and education programs.
Since Jump Rope for Heart started in 1983, schools like ours have raised more than $104 million for the Heart Foundation’s lifesaving work.
It’s important you register your child online, so they can receive the full benefits of the program and participate in online fundraising, simply follow the link below to get started. www.jumprope.org.au/parents
Students will be practicing their skipping at school and home, and during this time you can share their online fundraising page with family and friends to help raise money for this great cause.
We will hold our school Jump Off Day on Wednesday 24 November (Week 7), and this will mark the end of the program and is a chance for everyone to come together to skip and show off their newly learned skills.
Thank you for supporting the Jump Rope for Heart program!

IS A LIBRARY BOOK LURKING IN YOUR HOUSE?
Could families please have a look at home for library books that may have been forgotten and return them to the library? We will be very appreciative of these lost books returning to the library so they may be read again.
Library books will have stickers on the spine showing letters, numbers or genre symbols. The book will also have a Carramar Library stamp in one of the first pages.
We would love to have these books back.
