It has been a great start to school again this term. Term 2 is another busy term with a full range of extra-curricular programs and events taking place. These programs include Active April, Movie Under the Stars, Prep Pyjama Day, Edwin Flack District Cross Country, Grade 6 Winter School Sports, Kea Cup Netball, Grade 6 Radio Awareness, Mother's Day Stall, a range of Mother's Day activities, Grade 3 and 4 excursion to Melbourne Zoo, Edwin Flack District Girl's Football and Casey North Division Cross Country.

We also have a number of academic and extension programs taking place this term. These include Thinking Outside the Box, ICAS University of NSW Testing, maths extension groups, Chess Club, Code Club, Choir, Grade 4 and Grade 6 Art Extension Groups, Confident Kids Music Theatre Program, along with school reports going home and Parent-Teacher Interviews/Student-led Conferences.

This term we continue to focus on weekly values, such as respect, patience friendliness and confidence. Our values underpin every aspect of our school activity and are evidenced through our expectations of behaviour.

This term there will be opportunities for parents and our school community to have input into our School Review and School Strategic Plan. We are currently in the process of reviewing our Values and Vision, with opportunity for parents and our school community to have input.

Enrolments are well and truly underway for Prep 2018. If you are considering Oatlands Primary School we would encourage you to enrol as soon as possible. A reminder that our transition program (Leap into Learning) for next year's Prep students will start during the first part of September and run through until the end of November.
