The Weekly Wrap

We are well into Term 3 with much happening across the school. Students and staff continue to participate in a range of activities and events in addition to their regular learning programs. 

This week marks School Service Officers (SSO) Week on our school calendar, where we acknowledge our SSOs for their ongoing work and efforts. At Craigburn, we are fortunate to have a team of dedicated support staff who support both the administration / management of the school as well as a myriad of learning support programs. 

Thank you for taking the time to read through this week’s weekly wrap to keep up to date with school happenings.

  • Excursions / Camps Update – As per the recent post  we have recently reviewed our excursions and camps consent forms to align with departmental procedures and are unable to continue offering the signing facility through the Qkr! App for consent. However, payment can still easily be made through the Qkr! App. Parents/Caregivers will be required to complete and sign the yellow consent form after having carefully read the information.  Forms are then to be returned to the school. Any consent forms that have been submitted via Qkr! prior to Monday 29th July, 2019 will still be accepted. Students will not be able to attend any excursions/camps where a yellow consent form has not been returned to the school.
