Our Term 4 will be another busy term at Oatlands Primary School, providing a great chance for students to work towards, attain and extend their learning, as well as participating in a range of extra-curricular activities.

Oatlands Primary School is accepting enrolments two and a half years prior to children starting, which means we are now taking enrolments for 2018 and 2019. If you would like to have a school tour, please call the office and book a time.

Our Pre-prep program Leap into Learning is in full swing. It has been great to see how our 2017 prep students have developed in their school readiness. This is a big term also for our grade 6 students, who are getting close to the end of their primary schooling at Oatlands Primary School. Our grade 6 students have shown a lot of leadership across our school this year. This term these students will have a range of activities, which culminate in the Grade 6 Graduation.

We also have a range of extra-curricular activities this term, which include Division Athletics, Health and Physical Education Week, Chesterfield Farm Excursion (Prep), Maths Day (Prep and Grade 1), Healesville Sanctuary (Grade 1), Summer Lightning Premiership (Grade 6), Maths Games Night (Prep to Grade 2), cinema excursion (Grade 5), Remembrance Day Ceremony, Tabloid Sports (Grade 3), School Production (dance), Graduation Bear Making (Grade 6), O-Factor (Grade 5), Bike Education (Grade 5), Ten Pin Bowling Excursion (Grade 3) and the Thinking Outside the Box extension program (Grade 2).

On Christmas Day I got lots of LEGO but these are some of my favourites. I have got lots more and I might even get some on Tuesday, my b’day.

Not going to plan; really? It’s great to see our little leprechaun getting into the swing of playing basketball; maybe he was a little ambitious beginning to play at such a high level, but hey, you never know unless you try! We’ve now come to …

So, not even Christmas Day is safe from our little leprechaun! It seems there is no limit to what this feisty little fella will get up to; a little mischief here, a little mischief there…make for interesting and fun times, don’t you think? &#…

I suppose all our little leprechaun’s activities throughout this month of December have made him hungry [maybe even a little hangry!], but really? The moon? Cheese? Don’t tell me he’s there with Peppa Pig playing in the muddy puddles; no…

Muddy puddles with Peppa Pig; really? They can’t be in Narre Warren in this heat, besides, it hasn’t rained here for a while. Maybe our little leprechaun is showing his playful side; it must be exhausting getting up to mischief the way he does…
