Wes Holloway - Principal
Welcome to our updated newsletter format. We hope that this format will provide the Oatlands PS community with a different insight into our great school. Our newsletter will continue to be published on a fortnightly basis and will include pages from our Principal Team, Specialist Team, Year Level Teachers, along with a calendar and notices.
The relationship between home and school is a crucial one and the closer that we can work with parents the more our students (your children) will benefit. Many of you will have gone along to the information sessions about Compass, which will soon be operational and we believe Compass will further strengthen our partnership with you.
Last Monday we had a Beanie for Brain Cancer fundraising day where students were able to wear a beanie to school for a gold coin donation, with the money going towards brain cancer research. It would be great as a school if our contribution is able to help find a cure for brain cancer sometime in the future. As some of you may be aware one of our staff members, Jessie Mammino, has been diagnosed with brain cancer. Our thoughts are with Jessie, Anthony and family as they bravely fight this battle. The support from our staff and parent community has been significant and it reinforces the strength of the caring community culture that we have at Oatlands.
