Local ANZAC Day Service – 25th April 2018

April 25th, 2018 | Posted by Sarah Kennedy

Last Wednesday 25th April 2018, the combined Oatley RSL, Penshurst RSL and Mortdale RSL ANZAC Day Service was held at 6am in the Oatley Memorial Gardens.

Oatley Public School was officially represented by some of our Year 6 school leaders: Finley S, Hannah G and Zachary H, who laid a wreath at the memorial on behalf of the school. As dawn broke and the sun rose, many more Oatley PS students from K-6 were spotted in the extremely large crowd.

Thank you to all the Oatley Public School families who rose at such an early hour to attend the service with Mr Lao and myself.

Parent Parking

April 13th, 2018 | Posted by Debbie Hunter

I want to support the P&C concerns in regards to parents parking in local resident’s driveways and leaving their car unattended to accompany their child into the school. An unfortunate incident occurred this week when a resident was unable to get her car out of her driveway to make a doctors appointment. We need to be respectful to our local residences and most importantly abide by the road rules. It is the school that gets called into question when it is only a couple of parents who have created the issue. We are moving into the cooler months and wet weather days so please respect the safety of our children and be proactive so we don’t have to be reactive.

During the week Orlando and Cooper attended a trial for a combined GRPSSA and Botany Bay Touch Football Team and they were both successful. The boys will now compete at the Sydney East Tournament on the 21st May. Congratulations boys.

Year 6 Fun Day

April 12th, 2018 | Posted by Vanessa Hewitt

What an amazing day Wednesday turned out to be. The weather was glorious and the festive spirit and excitement meant that OPS was buzzing.

After scripture, the Year 6 students began setting up their stalls and activities in readiness for the K-5 students attending after lunch. Poster were hung, equipment gathered and costumes were on – they were ready.

The K-2 students headed to the hall for a disco while 3-5 students started the activities. There was slime, face painting, challenges, sponges, mystery boxes, toilet seats,delicious cupcakes and of course spiders!!

After an hour the groups swapped and it was the K-2 students who participated in the activities. Everyone had a ball!

A huge congratulations to the Year 6 students. The Fun Day planning began in Week 2 of this term and involved designing their activity, risk assessments, resourcing, creating posters, practise days, reassessing the effectiveness of their idea and a huge amount of problem solving, team work and leadership skills.

Thank you also to the parents who supported this fundraiser via the donation of ice cream, soft drinks, cupcakes and prizes.

As Year 6 teachers we are incredibly proud of the students in our classes. They worked so hard to provide fun activities for the rest of the school to participate in and set a really good example for others to follow.

Well done Year 6 2018 – You all did an amazing job.
