Goodbye to 5MD & OPS

What a year it’s been! We need to say goodbye, not only to a Grade 5, but to Kevin who is leaving Oatlands to live in Sri Kanka in 2017. We will miss your after 9 arrivals at school and your super smile, but most of all, we will miss YOU! πŸ™

I hope you keep in touch and let us know how you’re going; you’ll be one hard little guy to forget! Thank-you for being an important one-twenty-fifth of 5MD this year…its been a ton of fun! πŸ™‚

Leprechaun on the Loose ~ Day#19

I couldn’t let this one escape! Any chance to see my mighty Saints in action, at any time of the year too…brilliant! But, how on earth did our little leprechaun get out onto the ground at Etihad Stadium and not be noticed by anyone? And who was he helping? I don’t think we’ll ever know!

This little guy’s certainly been on the loose for some time now – just when and where will he end end up? Intriguing, isn’t it? πŸ™‚

2017 Leadership Presentation

To prepare our Grade 5 students for their role as the leaders of our school in 2017, Mrs Gamble gave a presentation outlining the roles and responsibilities of ALL students in Grade 6.

It was terrific to listen to the students’ responses to the questions posed and the amazing insight they have into what is expected of them as future leaders of our school. 

All I can say is, the 2017 future of Oatlands Primary School, with this group of students at the helm, is looking very bright indeed! πŸ™‚

Seriously? Yep!

Do you think this amazing group of students [you too Riley!] enjoyed their PE lesson today? Last practice before dress rehearsal tomorrow and performing for the parent community on Thursday; I’m a little [a lot really!] excited for both days!

Love the song, love the dance, love this incredible group of kids! πŸ™‚

P.S. We all miss you Linda! πŸ™

Bento Fun with Darrius’ Mum!


How exciting to have a published author in 5MD, well, we’ll claim you as one of ours! I am really looking forward to reading your recipe book and trying some of the amazing things you have showcased in there. Your book looks beautiful and I have no doubts that it will change the eating habits of lots of children! πŸ™‚
