Due to parent feedback, we have decided to move away from the web based newsletter. Our newsletter will be emailed home to all families twice a term and a hard copy will be available from the College office.
Flinders is devastated by the sudden and untimely death of one of our Tyabb Junior School students.
Our school community is in shock and struggling to come to terms with these tragic circumstances. We heard about the incident last night and have put plans in place to support our community.
There is always excitement and enthusiasm for students and parents when school begins. At the Tyabb campus we are looking forward to meeting our new students and seeing our returning students once again and as the year begins, we would like to highlight for all parents, some of the traffic safety considerations at our campus.
At the end of 2013, a letter was posted to all Carrum Downs families with regard to the School Bus Service, which is to commence operation in 2014. We have included a copy of the letter (including route maps and booking form) below for your reference. If you would like to utilise this service, please fill out the Booking Form and return it to the Carrum Downs Office as soon as possible.
A huge thank you to all the volunteers who worked tirelessly throughout the year and to all the families who supported the P & F with the various fundraisers and school community activities. We have all achieved some great results which go a long way towards benefiting our children’s learning environment.
