Dear parents and carers
Everyone at Oaklands has been so busy this half-term!
This half-term the students have been making a music video. We appointed Robert, our recording studio and video technician to work at Oaklands this term and this has meant there are so many opportunities to get on film! Those of you who are enjoying using our video lessons on our website will have noticed the quality continues to improve. I am really looking forward to seeing the Feliz Navidad video when it is released!
We are also looking forward to the imminent launch of our new and updated website. Mairead has been working very hard to update all the information and news onto a new website which will make it easier for you to find the information you need now that we have 2 schools on 2 sites.
I would like to thank the parents who have been working with Jim to set up a parent teacher association. Oaklands is entering a new era going forwards. Now that our buildings are complete we have used all the funding we had to buy special equipment for the children, and we will now need the support of a fundraising team to continue to make sure they have everything they need. We are also excited that parents will have more opportunities to meet each other. I hope as many of you as possible will be joining us on 16th December at our fête run by the PTA group.
As we reach Christmas I can let you know that Oaklands has continued to be a safe place for children to learn. There have been only a small number of cases of Covid this term. We want this to continue. We know that cases of Covid in the community are very high, and we’re asking you to look after yourselves well during the Christmas break, and to help us keep everyone safe in the New Year by making sure all the children have a lateral flow test before coming back to school.
May I wish you all a happy safe Christmas and we all look forward to working with you in 2022.
