Welcome to Oakhill School

Rebuilding together …

Oakhill School, our families and extended community are immensely grateful for the wonderful support we have received from organisations, schools and private individuals since the fires on 7 June 2017. We have been deeply touched by the kind and generous donations enabling us to facilitate help to those in need. Ever thankful for the outpouring of compassion and support towards our broader school community, we look forward to rebuilding together as the new springs of regrowth appear.
