A personal note from the Carramar Leadership Team

Dear Parents and Carers

We would like to thank you for your ongoing support through the ever changing environment we find ourselves in. We have been overwhelmed with the community’s appreciation of the way our amazing staff have handled the current situation. Your emails and words of encouragement mean a lot to us.

Below is one of the many beautiful messages we received, this one anonymously. We cannot express enough how the kindness and understanding of our community has lifted the spirits of our staff. THANK YOU!

Explaining COVID-19 to children

Dear Parents,

In addition to the email sent earlier by our Principal Mrs Beare, please see below a video link from Dr Michael Carr-Gregg giving advice to parents on how to best educate their children about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We encourage you to view this video and have a conversation with your child. Staff have been handling the situation very calmly with students over the last couple of weeks, ensuring that school is a safe place where they can learn, enjoy each other’s company and where normality is paramount.

A message from our Eco-Warriors

We are the Eco- Warriors and part of our job is to think of ideas to help our school become an eco-friendly school.

We have decided as eco warriors that we would like to introduce: WASTE FREE WEDNESDAY!

With waste free Wednesday, this hopefully will save the environment a bit more and less plastic in our community.

The point of the waste free Wednesday is not to bring in food with any type of wrappers on it including candy, muesli bars and any other wrappers.

This is to reduce the amount of waste that we produce as a school. Instead of packing food with wrappers, please can we encourage parents to put your food for recess and lunch in reusable containers on a Wednesday.

Remember to be eco safe, but not just at school but also at home as well.
