Students Attitudes to School Survey
This year for the first time Year 4 students joined the Year 5 and Year 6 students to complete the Department’s Attitudes to School Survey. This anonymous survey was completed online for the first time and students were asked to respond to questions in relation to:
Effective Teaching Practice
Learner Characteristics eg. Attitudes to school work
Social Engagement eg. Friendship
Experience of Bullying
During the first week of term the results were distributed and we are very proud to announce that the results were extremely positive. The data also breaks the results into levels and gender which has provided us with an insight into particular groups we need to target.
Parent Opinion Survey 2017
Our school is conducting a survey to find out what parents think of our school. The Parent Opinion Survey is an annual survey offered by the Department of Education and Training that is completed by a sample of ‘randomly’ selected parents at each school.
It is designed to assist our school in gaining an understanding of parents’ perception of school climate, student engagement and relationships with our parent community. Our school will use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies.
The survey will be conducted (online for the first time) by ORIMA Research Pty Ltd and only takes 15 minutes to complete. The survey can be accessed via desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile at any convenient time within the fieldwork period from Monday 7th August to Sunday 27th August. All responses to the survey are anonymous.
Further information for selected families, will be sent home tomorrow 3rd August.

Congratulations to Jason Y who obtained first place in the recent JVI judo competition on the 13th of July.
I would like to remind families with children who will be commencing school in 2018 that we are taking enrolments now. Could all current parents who have not as yet completed and lodged enrolment forms for 2018 Prep students please do so as soon as possible so planning can begin. If you are aware that your child/children will not be attending OPS in 2018 could you please inform the Office in writing.
Due to the improved weather conditions we are currently experiencing a high volume of jackets and jumpers being left in the school yard and ending up in lost property. Although a lot of these items are named we ask parents to remind their children it is the child’s responsibility to ensure they collect their jumpers and jackets before moving to line.
