We are looking forward to performing our Christmas Plays next month and are working hard and having fun practising for the Oatlands Premiere of 'CHRISTMAS WITH THE ALIENS!!'
Parents of children in Ms. O'Connell & Ms. Coffey's class are welcome on Thursday December 13th and the next day Ms. Finglas and Ms. Hilary's classes will take to the stage on Friday 14th December, at 11am.
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!
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.
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.
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
