The Children of Oatlands 'Run 4 Fun'

Run4Fun was a huge success with a very impressive amount of money raised for the school.  We are so proud of all of the children who went to great lengths not only doing the run but in getting such great sponsorship.  Great fun was had by everyone, including the gorillas and lion who encouraged the children to start their run by chasing them!   Congratulations to all involved and to the Parents Council who hosted this event to promote Mobility Week in Oatlands.

OATLANDS CELEBRATES GRANDPARENTS!

On the 9th of October 2015 we welcomed some very special people into the school.

Beep Beep Day for Road Safety Week!

Irish Road Safety Week 2015

To raise awareness of the importance of safety on our roads the whole of Oatlands Primary school donned our high-vis jackets and walked to Stillorgan Shopping Centre and back again on October 7th 2015.

We practised the safe cross code for crossing roads; looking left and right and always listening for traffic.  

Green School Flag Raising Ceremony!

We had a very exciting day in Oatlands on Friday 18th September 2015. We achieved our fourth Green Flag for Travel and Transport from An Taisce and all gathered to celebrate and watch the flag being raised high in front of the school. 

Our scooter parking area was opened by Independent Councillor Deirdre Donnelly. 

We would like to thank our Green Council members and DLR CC Felicity Gill, Ally Menary from An Taisce, RSA representative Justine Trautt, and the parents and staff who helped make this a very memorable day. 

 

IMPORTANT PARKING AND TRAFFIC MANAGEMENT SEPTEMBER 2015

Due to New County Council Parking Restrictions on Woodlands Avenue and Woodlands Drive there is NO PARKING available outside the school.  Parking is NOT PERMITTED in The Beaufield Mews or on the school grounds.

We would ask that parents NOT DRIVE UP WOODLANDS AVENUE EITHER IN THE MORNING OR AT SCHOOL CLOSING.  There is ample parking in Stillorgan Shopping Centre car park and the overflow car park.

We expect full co-operation from all parents in this regard
