Our Term 4 will be another busy term at Oatlands Primary School, providing a great chance for students to work towards and attain their learning goals, as well as participating in a range of extra-curricular activities.
We are now accepting enrolments two and a half years prior to children starting, which means we are now taking enrolments for 2017 and 2018. 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 2016 prep students have developed in their school readiness. This is a big term for our grade 6 students, who are getting close to the end of their primary schooling. Our grade 6 students have shown a lot of leadership across our school this year and have a range of end of grade 6 activities, which culminate in the Grade 6 Graduation.
We are continuing to develop and improve the facilities of our school. It is great to see how our students are enjoying our new landscaped playground area. We also have a new concrete footpath near the Grade 2 and 4 classrooms that goes around to the Bike Shed, which has improved all-weather accessibility to that area.
This term we have our bi-annual Oatlands Fete and Art Show. The Fete is looking like being another huge event with a full range of rides, exhibits and stalls. The Fete Committee have been working very hard and it looks like being a great event. The theme of the Art Show this year is the Jungle Book and students have been completing a range of artwork for the show.
The range of other extra-curricular activities this term includes Division Athletics, Health and Physical Education Week, Learning by Doing Woodwork Incursion (3/4s), Chesterfield Farm Excursion (Prep), Maths Day (Prep and Grade 1), Healesville Sanctuary (Grade 1), Summer Lightning Premiership (Grade 6), Melbourne Museum and Imax Excursion (Grade 5), Remembrance Day Ceremony, Rollerama Excursion (Grade 3), School Production (dance), Graduation Bear Making (Grade 6), O-Factor (Grade 5), Bike Education (Grade 5) and Ten Pin Bowling Excursion (Grade 3).
