Premier’s Spelling Bee

The 2013 Premier’s Spelling Bee is fast approaching! Students received a note last week about this event, which will take place on Monday 12th August. The competition will be held in our Upper hall with Stage 3 (years 5 & 6) commencing at 9.30am and Stage 2 (years 3 &4) at 12pm. All students in years 3-6 are welcome to enter, but need to sign up with Mrs Bowman by the end of this week. Parents and caregivers are welcome to attend!

Why spelling is important!


The top two students from Stage 2 and 3 will receive an invitation to participate in the Regional Finals at Lambton Public school on Monday 16th September.

ICAS Competitions

Today at our assembly, students who participated in the UNSW Science competition received their certificates and results. Well done to the OC students who took part. The UNSW competitions are always set at a high standard so I was very impressed with the teffiric effort students made. Congratulations to Oliver, Jasmine, Frank, Ethan C and Allan who received a certificate of participation; Chris who achieved a credit and Mitch who excelled achieving a distinction.


ICAS results for competitions previously completed will also be handed out at our Monday assemblies (12.30pm) as they become available. Parents and caregivers are always more than welcome to attend.

OC Champs!

Today our year 5 and 6 debaters took part in Round 3 of the Equity Debate Competition against Merewether Public School. Both teams had impressive arguments for an interesting and challenging topic – Hollywood has a lot to answer for – but it was Tighes Hill who were the winners today! Well done to Allan, Mitch, Amy and Jorji who will now commence to the semi finals of the competition. A big thank you also goes to our wonderful Miss Beker, who works so hard to make our public speaking and debating competitions a success!
