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.
