The Weekly Wrap – Term 1 Week 10 – 2024

We look forward to families joining us for the 2024 Craigburn Primary School Sports Day on Friday 5th April. The students are excited about representing their house teams in what should be a fun-filled day. 

Sports Day information can be accessed here, with the program available to download as a PDF on your preferred mobile device for easy access on the day. 

A small number of printed programs will be available by the scorer’s table at the oval grounds shed.

Sports Day will conclude in time for early dismissal at 2:10pm. 

Please check in with the following posts for further information.

As always, we appreciate families and friends taking the time to help out on the day with the sausage sizzle and cake stall. Please contact the front office if you can help out for 30 minutes or so. Thank you.

On Leave – I will be on leave for the last 2 weeks of term, however, I am disappointed to be missing my first Craigburn sports day in 21 years. I know all students, staff and families will enjoy a fun, exciting and enjoyable day and I look forward to checking in on the day from afar. Best wishes, Paul.

Car Parking 

In the lead up to Sports Day, we remind all parents, carers and extended families and friends of the importance of road safety and parking around the school. We also remind everyone that Rangers from the local council visit schools at random times to check that parking regulations are adhered to on occasions such as sports days. A reminder too, that car parking by parents is not permitted on school grounds unless needing to use the disabled parking space or in an emergency. Thank you for your support.
