The Moral Purpose of Cranbourne South Primary School is to ensure that:
* decisions are based on what is right for the child and their development as whole beings.
* the individual starting point of a child’s growth is valued; they learn at different paces and through varied approaches.
* children’s achievements are celebrated.
* a child’s cultural heritage is acknowledged and respected.
* being a literate and numerate individual is still, and will continue to be, at the cornerstone of our educational priorities.
* relationship building is fostered in the connections we develop between students, with staff, with families and the broader community.
* active participation of parents is seen as an essential part of children’s success at school
* staff exercise high levels of ethical and professional behaviour.
* professional growth is supported; which is vital and continuous.
POSITIVITY: I look on the bright side.
PERSISTENCE: I am determined.
PRIDE: I stand tall.
PASSION: I strive to achieve.
Our school endeavours to empower teachers, students and community members to embrace learning, achieve their personal best and strengthen emotional, social and physical wellbeing.
To provide all students with an education they can be proud of by exhibiting confidence and creativity in this complex and ever changing world. To assist students in taking ownership of their learning; to grow into responsible, happy, resilient and socially fulfilled individuals.
Capital Works Project
Cranbourne South Primary School was established on April 23 1956 in a one room building and a total of 27 students. The school’s official opening was conducted on August 24 1956. The first ‘Head Teacher” Mr P.B. Botsman was an energetic man with the support of an equally energetic school committee and mother’s club.
A second classroom was added at the end on 1961 with a third added in 1970. By 1975 the school was extended to six classrooms plus two offices, staffroom, storeroom and attached toilets.

School Council & Governance | 2020
Cranbourne South Primary School, like all government schools in Victoria has a school council. The School Council is a group of people who assist in governing the school. It is given the power to set the directions for the school, and is a legal entity in its own right. A School Council directly governs and influences the quality of education that a school provides to its students.
To carry out its role effectively, the School Council needs to be able to work cooperatively with the parents and staff at the school. School and community consultation is an integral part of the effective running of school councils.
Cranbourne South Primary School has 11 members in total – 7 parents and 4 DEECD staff members.
School Council meets at least 8 times throughout the year.
