From the Principal

Dear parents and carers,

All Reports were given to students attending school last Friday 2 December as a hard copy and a second report emailed out to parents through the SENTRAL APP. Please contact the school if you have not received the Report. We use SENTRAL APP to allow parent or carers to have a digital copy to keep and file.

We want to acknowledge the P&C Grants Committee who successfully achieved their grant submission for Community Grants from Mark Coure. This has covered the new north site playground upgrade with the new synthetic turf for our younger students. Congratulations to our P&C Grants Committee and especially to our Student 2022 Student Leadership team. The handover of this project to the school will be on Friday 9 December 2022.

We are now into our final two weeks countdown. It has been an incredible year of traversing through the start of the year in a COVID environment to opening up the school again to allow for partnerships to continue. Next week we will be celebrating our students achievements in their learning in our Celebrating Success assembly. We believe in our motto "every child a success" and this awards ceremony acknowledges all of our students. We look forward to having our community there.

Our Year 6 have had a great couple of weeks being involved in their end of year activities and we will be congratulating them for their achievements as they end their primary schooling years and move into high school. They also will be awarded, at their Celebrating Success assembly, the prestigious awards from citizenship, sports, academic and curriculum areas. It is always a very memorable moment as we see our Student Leadership complete their final formal assembly and hand over the baton to our new Student Leadership team 2023.

Our next couple of weeks will be finalising programs in our classes, preparing for talent fest, class party day and finally our Guard of Honour for our students leaving OPS. 2023 will start with our Teachers returning 27 & 30 January 2023. Students in Year 1 -6 return Tuesday 31 January 2023. Our Kindergarten start school officially for whole days on Thursday 2 February 2023.

We are working towards having a positive start to staffing and classes for 2023.

SRC initiative GIVING BACK

This year, our Community of Schools (GRC Oatley, Mortdale PS, Oatley PS and Oatley West PS) joined forces to collect items for Georges River Life Care – a local organisation that provides a myriad of support services to members of the Georges River community. Each Christmas, they set the goal of delivering 400 backpacks to students across the community to ensure that all young people in our area begin the new school year with everything they need to succeed. The supplies will be sorted and placed in backpacks, ready to be handed out with Christmas food hampers and delivered to schools in our local area. Thank you to everyone who donated.

Regards

Debbie Hunter
