Thanks Dad xxxxx

On Tuesday 30th of August many of the dads from the Oatlands school community came to visit their children in their classrooms for the morning session. The children in Prep HO were so excited to have their dads helping them decorate their ‘Marble Run’ and really enjoyed showing them around our classroom.  Thank you to all the dads or special people that took time out of their busy day to come visit us at school xxx
