Welcome back to Oatlands Primary School for the 2015 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 eleven new and returning staff:
Catherine McBride (Prep CM), Abbey de Jong (1AD), Melissa Osborne (1MO), Jessica Sutherland (1JS), Stasi Moutzouris (3AM), Hannah Roche (3HR), Amanda Biemans (3MB), Tania Nichols (4TN), Dominie Paterno (Info Lit), Kara Ellis (PE) and Maree Leathem (ES).

It was great to see how settled our students were on our first day of school, with students focussed on learning from the beginning. At Oatlands we get so many positive comments about the manners, positive behaviour and friendliness of our students, which is a credit to both parents and staff.

This year will be a 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, Newsletters, Web Site) and we are very keen to hear from you any time.

Our new landscape development is well underway and we expect this to be finished before the start of Term 2. This design will include a themed playground, amphitheatre, covered chess tables and other themed play areas. The new playground is for all of our students, our preps will use it during recess and lunch (along with their buddies at times) and classes across our school will use it during other parts of the school day.
