What a wonderful day we had last Saturday, Fete day!

It was certainly a fantastic day all round, with a great vibe and community feel. I cannot thank the staff, parents and children enough who worked so tirelessly up to and on the day. The feedback and compliments about the day have been extremely positive. By the end of the day, due to the combined help of many hands, you would never have known that a fete had been held.


Just a reminder that the Year 3 and 5 children will be participating in NAPLAN testing next next Tuesday (Language Conventions & Writing), Wednesday (Reading) and Thursday (Mathematics).

I wish everyone a relaxing weekend!

Ron Cantlon

Our student showcase, or maybe we should rename it to ‘school showcase’, is undoubtedly the OSPS Fete. On behalf of the whole school community, children and parents I cannot thank each and every OSPS family for your tremendous efforts and donations towards the fete. It was the biggest, most attended and greatest vibe we have experienced leading up to and on the day.

Sincere thanks goes to our magnificent Fete sponsors, without you the day would not have been such a huge success!

The feedback and compliments are flowing in and the pictures say 1000 words!

Assistant Principal
