Signing off…

This is to be my last week at Cranbourne Carlisle PS for a little while.


I have been very fortunate to be a part of the fantastic CCPS community for the last 7 years, 5 of those as welfare/wellbeing leader.


Starting this Friday, I’m taking 12 months leave, with a return scheduled at the start of 2019.

In the mean time, I’m taking up a position as State Umpire Manager for Cricket Victoria.


I’ll be around for Christmas Market and a few other things and I look forward to seeing you all again when I return.

Movember  is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men’s suicide.

The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at The goal of Movember is to “change the face of men’s health.”

By encouraging men (whom the charity refers to as “Mo Bros”) to get involved, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Besides annual check-ups, the Movember Foundation encourages men to be aware of family history of cancer and to adopt a healthier lifestyle.
