The works on the Robotics Lab are continuing with the fit out taking place at the moment. It won’t be long before its up and running and I know we can’t wait for that!

The year 2 children are deep into their rehearsals for the upcoming production of ‘A Small Part of the World’, on the 19th, 20th and 21st November. Please put these dates in your diary as I’m sure the Year 2 children will delight you in our final production of the year. Ticketing information will be published soon.

As mentioned in an earlier newsletter, our school is having a school review this term. Many hours of work have been done to collect information to showcase the performance of the school over the past 4 years. It’s a fantastic process which shows the wonderful work that everyone at this school does to achieve amazing student outcomes. I will inform you of the review outcome at a later date.

Have a great week.

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.

Please click here for further parking information oakleighsouthps.vic.edu.au/about-us/#parking




Yard duty before school commences at 8:45 am.

After school teachers are in the grounds until 3:45 pm. Students on school grounds outside these times will not be supervised (unless they attending a before or after school care program or supervised extracurricular activity).

Parents/carers are requested to ensure that students do not arrive early or stay late after school unless they are attending before or after school care, or a pre-arranged supervised activity (i.e. running club).
