Message From The Principal:

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 2019 and 2020. 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 2018 prep students have developed in their school readiness with their teacher Jenny Robinson. 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 at the end of this term.

We also have a range of extra-curricular activities this term, which include Grade 2-6 Maths Extension, Prep Maths Games Day, Whole-school Dance Production, Fete and Art Show, Division Athletics, Health and Physical Education Week, Chesterfield Farm Excursion (Prep), Maths Day (Prep and Grade 1), Healesville Sanctuary (Grade 1), Summer Lightning Premiership (Grade 6), Hooptime Basketball Competitions, Grade 4 Philip Island Camp, Maths Games Night (Prep to Grade 2), cinema excursion (Grade 5), Grade 3 Tabloid Sports Evening, Remembrance Day Ceremony, Tabloid Sports (Grade 3), School Production (dance), Graduation Bear Making (Grade 6), Grade 5 Sovereign Hill Camp, Bike Education (Grade 5), Ten Pin Bowling Excursion (Grade 3), Grade 6 Summer Interschool Sports and the Thinking Outside the Box extension program.
