Welcome back to Oatlands Primary School for the 2017 school year. I hope that you had a restful and enjoyable break over the Christmas and New Year period.

This year we welcome John Armao to the role of Assistant Principal of Welfare. John will be working on a range of different programs across our school and working closely with classroom teachers in a proactive role.

This year Fiona Jamieson will be running a music program for students through our school choir, percussion groups and Grade 1 music lessons. Fiona brings a huge amount of experience in music to this program.

This year we have a number of programs that will further extend students learning, such as an expansion of the Thinking Outside the Box Program, maths extension groups, Chess Club, University of New South Wales ICAS Testing, Computer Coding Club, Mathletics, along with classroom based extension of students in literacy and numeracy. This year we are further developing our technology program, including robotics, coding and STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) programs. We also have a number of programs to catch students up if they are behind, including Reading Recovery, GRIN Maths, MiniLIT, Toe by Toe, Speech program, Literacy Launchers and Targeted Reading.

This year will be another important 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 Dojo, Classroom Blogs, Newsletters, Web Site) and we are very keen to hear from you any time.

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…
