On Wednesday 26th of August Oatlands Primary School held it’s annual Grandparent’s Day. Prep HW was very lucky to have so many lovely grandparents and special friends come to visit us in our classroom for the afternoon. With our visitors we drew some pictures, went on the iPads, played some maths games, read books and showed off our beautiful work!
Thank you so much special visitors for coming to our classroom.  It was wonderful to spend the afternoon with you all.
We had a fabulous time!

Senior Constable Brad and Lex

Today Senior Constable Brad and his dog Lex from the Dog Squad came to visit us here at OPS. Senior Constable Brad told us lots of interesting things about his job as a police officer. He explained that policeman’s job was to protect the community and help people. He showed us his uniform, his vest, his handcuffs and his very big police dog Lex!! The children all loved having a pat of his beautiful dog. Thank you Senior Constable Brad and Lex for visiting us – we LOVED it!!!
