Nominations open today for a two year position on the Oakleigh Primary School and Kindergarten School Council. There are currently 3 vacancies for the Parent Member category and 2 vacancies for the DET (Dept Education and Training) category. There will also be a Casual Vacancy for a parent member due to the resignation of Janine McBurnie whose daughter left the school at the end of last year. I would like to publicly thank Janine for her many contributions over the years including her membership of the Council.
Last year I mentioned in a Newsletter that one of our key focuses over the next four years is the implementation of a STEM Program (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics).
Welcome back students and staff for the 2018 school year. This year we particularly welcome our 92 new Preps and their families – many of these have transitioned through our kindergarten which is proving to provide a wonderful preparation for school.
End of Year Events
Once again our end of year calendar is hectic. Please refer to our diary dates in the left hand column of this Newsletter for all important dates.
This time of the year our focus very much shifts to planning for 2018. Our enrolments continue to increase with four Prep classes enrolled and only 35 Year 6 students exiting.
