Welcome back to Oatlands Primary School for the 2016 school year. I hope that you had the chance to have a restful and enjoyable break over the Christmas and New Year period. A very warm welcome also to our fifteen new and returning staff to Oatlands Primary School: Deanne Morgan (Assistant Principal), Susan Williams (Info Lit), Holly Wilson (Educational Psychologist), Pamela Dale (Prep Lit/Num), Natalia Moana (Grade 1 Lit/Num), Melissa Osborne (Prep HO), Brooke Begovic (Prep BB), Gareth Dutlow (Prep GD), Sheridan Dudley (Prep SD), Jacqueline Taranto (1JT), Maddison Staude (1MS), Serice Benc (1SB), Jessica Hodsman (3HB), Brittany Ternanov (3BT) and Elizabeth Brouwer (5EB). We also welcome Matt Kenny and Deanne Morgan to the roles of Assistant Principal.

This year will be another very exciting year at Oatlands Primary School. We are continuing to develop our school into the best school that we can be. An important aspect of this is our strong foundation based on two-way communication between home and school. We have a number of organised opportunities where communication takes place (e.g. Parent-Teacher Interviews, Classroom Blogs, Newsletters, Web Site) and we are very keen to hear from you any time.

This year we have some changes that will assist the ongoing development and improvement at Oatlands Primary School. We have Holly Wilson working with us full time. Holly is an Educational Psychologist who will be looking at specific educational needs (advanced and lower) of students and developing a learning pathway to help these students move forward. We have two staff in Grade Prep and Grade One who will focus on support for students and extension. The Junior School will have the chance to be a part of the Thinking Outside The Box program during the year. All of this is in addition to the great things that are an ongoing part of Oatlands Primary School. The educational partnership between home and school is very important to us and we look forward to continuing this strong partnership in 2016.
