An amazing €1,900 was raised from the cake sale last week. This will go towards buying equipment for the new resource rooms at the school. Thank you to all the students, parents and teachers who contributed to making the event such a success!
We celebrated our 100th Day in school on Friday 10th February. Junior Infants had been counting every day and enjoyed a party with cake and balloons! We sang songs, played 100 number games and read a 100 Day Story.
We are really proud of how much our Junior Infants have grown, how hard they are working and how much they have learned since they started school. 100 cheers!! Hip Hip Hooray!
We take great pride in celebrating the culture of everyone in Oatlands Primary School. With a total number of 44 countries represented currently, we all enjoyed celebrating our International Day in Oatlands on the 15th of April 2016 with the hall transformed into a global community!
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.
Dublin footballer and Oatlands past pupil Rory O'Carroll visited Oatlands last week with the Sam Maguire. He received a huge welcome and we all say congratulations to him and the Dublin team for victory in the GAA All Ireland Senior Football Championship.

On the 9th of October 2015 we welcomed some very special people into the school. Grandparents of the pupils in the school were invited to visit the children in their classrooms and were treated to songs and poems. They enjoyed a cup of tea in the hall where artwork from all the classes was also on display. It was a really enjoyable day for all!
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.
