Welcome back to term 3! We hope you’ve had a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. Look at the amazing photo of OSPS from above taken by a parent from a drone over the school holidays. Thank you for sending it to us!

We have an exciting term 3 ahead, with the first of our Productions by the year 4’s ‘The Aristocat Kids’ on Tuesday 1st and Wednesday 2nd of August 7pm in the hall. The children and staff have been working very hard to produce a show that is ‘puuurfectly’ enjoyable. We encourage everyone to come and enjoy the show.

Tickets are available for purchase via Try Booking and we hope to see you there. All children who attend the show must be under the care of a parent or another adult (it is not a drop off event). Also a friendly reminder not to take photographs or video during the show as it distracts the   actors, effects the quality of the professional video we have taken and is not courteous to audience members. Photograph opportunities with the actors are welcome after the speeches at the end.


The year 6 production of Peter Pan Jnr will be performed in the last week of term 3, and the year 2 production of The Colour Factory week 5 of term 4.

Thank you to all the families who have been understanding of the road works out the front of the school this week. It is terrific to see families allowing extra time, parking safely at a distance and walking with umbrellas in the winter     weather.

Exchange Students 2017

11 sleeps till Japanese students visit!!

A huge thank you to all families who offered to host Japanese students! On Wednesday, host families had a chance to Skype their Japanese students, and we said our names and said ‘ Konnichiwa’. We are all very excited to have Japanese students from Tamba Higashi Primary School from 1st August, and all OSPS students will have opportunities to meet them during their stay!

Keep practicing your Japanese and make sure you will come and say “Konnichiwa”!!!
