From the Principal
The scope IT program has generated a lot of new vocabulary and understanding for our students. It is exciting to watch as they progress through the weekly activities which consolidate their learning in computational thinking skills. The program will continue next term expanding on more concept knowledge and IT applications for our students. Next term our Kindergartens will join into the program. We are taking enrolments at Oatley Public School for 2020 Kinder enrolments. If your child turns 5 years old before 31st July 2020 they are eligible to enrol. Please contact the school as we create a data base...
What a great experience for all the band students this weekend. Students participated in separate tutorials and combined training, intermediate and concert band sessions. A huge thank you to Mr Wheatley, Mrs Sterling and the high school tutors for providing an amazing program over the two days. Also a big thank you to Mrs Borg for being instrumental in organising the event, the supervising teachers and parent group who were available throughout the weekend for supervision. The weekend concluded with a great performance from all the students showing their talent and skills.
Last Friday, 14th June, the Year 2 choir went to St Paul's Anglican Church to perform a few songs to the elderly community. The students had so much fun in their first performance in front of an audience.
This week parents had an opportunity to participate in a Scope IT lesson with the students. Lessons varied from Binary coding, hardware and software applications, Google slides and Scratch coding. The students are exploring digital systems and how data is used and transmitted within systems.

It's back! The Oatley PS Colour Run will be held the afternoon of the last day of term (Friday, 5 July). For lunch, we're trying something new. Instead of a sausage sizzle, this year we'll have the Coon Toastie Truck visiting the school, so we'll be offering cheese toasties and poppers for lunch. To confirm numbers, all orders must be made via Flexischools the week before (5pm on Thursday, 27 June). Parents and younger siblings are welcome to order. Cheese toasties are $3 and poppers are $1.50. This is a fundraising initiative and all profit will go to the P&C to be spent...
