Term 3 is well and truly underway and it is a busy term that is focussed on our students further developing their learning. Early this term we conducted the special assembly recognising the contribution of our former Principal Stuart Daly to Oatlands Primary School. This was followed by the unveiling of the new name for our gymnasium, the Stuart Daly Gymnasium.
The OatGames, our celebration of the Commonwealth Games, happened recently. The opening ceremony was quite amazing, with Ms Jamieson walking into the gym playing the bagpipes, then our School Captains Katie and Heath delivering speeches and all of our students parading their representative countries. This was then followed by a range of games out on the soccer oval. Thank you to Mrs Gamble and Ms Jamieson for their organisation of the day.
This year's theme of Literacy and Numeracy Week (25 – 29th August) is AFL Football. The students will be invited to complete in an online Mathletics Challenge at school and home during the week while there is a Sizzling Starts Writing competition happening at school. The highlight of the week will be the Footy Colours dress up day on Thursday August 28th.
Our Fathers' Day Breakfast is coming up on Tuesday 2nd September, 2014. This is one of our school's highlight days where you can listen to a motivational and informative presentation, have a bit to eat, but most importantly, interact with your child at school. The guest speaker will be announced soon.
In 2015 we will have 7 classes of Prep students. A waiting list has been started for students wishing to enrol at Oatlands Primary School in Prep next year and who haven't currently secured a position. We have started to take enrolments for Prep students for 2016.
