Week beginning Monday 13 December 2021

Dear Parent or Carer

CLASS CELEBRATION OF LEARNING

We hope parents and community enjoyed our individual class zooms throughout last week to celebrate individual students’ successes. I am extremely proud of my teachers for their commitment and dedication they have given to your child this year and congratulate them on an amazingly challenging and productive year.

YEAR 6 GRADUATION CEREMONY

Thank you to our wonderful Class of 2021 students who were also acknowledged for their success. I have valued working with our Student Leadership Team this year and want to acknowledge them for their dedication to their lead role and the consistent support to the students at Oatley Public School.

SEMESTER TWO REPORTS

Your child will be bringing their report home on Friday 10 December 2021. Please contact the office on 95805519 if you require an extra report due to family circumstances.

TERM 4 ENDS 2021

Thursday 16 December 2021 for both students and teachers this year. The staff have completed twilight professional learning sessions during Semester 1 in lieu of our final Friday 17 December. The admin staff will only be on school site on that day for the morning period.

OUR FINAL WEEK

YEAR 6 FAREWELL, PICNIC DAYS, TALENT FEST, Kindergarten INCURSION and GUARD OF HONOUR will all take place during this final week beginning Monday 13 December. Teachers will communicate through their Class Dojo dates, times and expectations.

Please continue to refer to the department's Advice for families page for the latest information on settings in our schools.

Thank you again for your continued support during this school term. I congratulate all the school community as we end our 2021 school year and wish all families a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

Good luck to our outgoing Year 6 students for their future endeavours and to their parents if they are leaving our school for the opportunity to be part of Oatley Public School community. Please come back and see us.

REMINDER TO KEEP SCHOOL SAFE DURING HOLIDAY BREAK

We have security cameras operational as the school site is not open to the public when school is not in. If there are concerns in regards to vandalism which we have had or inappropriate behaviour of people on school site please don’t hesitate to call school security hotline on 1300880021. Thank you. We do action regular checks by security throughout the holiday break as well.

Advice and Guidance for Parents

The Secretary sat down for a short conversation with Professor Sharon Goldfeld, a paediatrician and Director of The Centre for Community Child Health. Professor Goldfeld has decades of experience in state government as a senior policy maker in health and education. During the 2020 second COVID-19 wave she analysed the school transmission data for the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services. During the discussion Sharon shares some practical tips for families when talking to children about COVID-19, the layers of protection in place in our schools, and the benefits of getting our students into the classroom to learn.

Debbie Hunter
