Welcome back to the final term of the year. As always at OSPS, the 11 week term will be full of exciting activities.

But at the moment the most exciting thing is the new ‘Robotics Lab’ which has been installed over the holiday break. It will not be long before it will be operational. I will keep you updated on this process as I am informed.

In a couple of weeks we will begin our 2020 Prep Orientation program. This will be held over four Friday afternoons where our new preppies will be involved in various activities to help familiarise them with school.

If there are any current families at the school who have not enrolled their child for 2020, please do so this week as its imperative that we know our numbers accurately for next year. Thank you.

Enjoy your week.

Ron Cantlon

A reminder to parents and carers are NOT to use the Staff Car Park, or the disabled parks, regardless of the time of day. It is NOT to be used as a quick drop off or collection point.

This includes after Choir on a Wednesday

Please make sure you do your civic duty to follow the road laws and rules. This includes parking correctly in the signed areas, and completing 3 point turns in the middle in the intersection!

We also urge parents to please remember to be patient and polite when using the Oval Carpark, and be good role models for all the children witnessing their behaviour. With over 800 families, drop off and collection times will be busy and you will need to plan your time accordingly.
