Welcome to our School
Welcome to Fawkner Primary School, a caring and nurturing learning environment. Our dedicated and experienced teachers provide a positive and enriching program, appreciating the individual needs and interests of each child.
Lorne Street Kindergarten is managed by the Northern Schools Early Years Cluster Inc. and is located within the grounds of Fawkner Primary School.
Our Kindergarten opened in January 2016.
We offer sessions for three-year old children (one four-hour session a week) and four-year old children (three five-hour sessions a week).
Within the precinct we also have a Maternal Child Health Nurse and a playgroup.
Kindergarten in a play-based learning environment for children in the years before school. Children are eligible to attend four-year old kindergarten if they turn four years old by 30th April in the year of attendance. Children are encouraged to be creative, to ask questions and to develop independence. Our aim is for each child to develop high self-esteem and confidence in their own abilities. We prioritise social and emotional skill development.

This term Foundation A and Foundation C went to Essendon Traffic School to learn about road and bike safety.
In term 3, a pilot program was delivered at Fawkner Primary School, delivering free dental check-ups for children in Foundation.
The dental team from Merri Health worked with the Youth Health Promotion team to deliver a talk with students about healthy foods, healthy drinks and the importance of brushing your teeth and visiting the dentist, as well as having a dental check.
All Foundation students who participated, learnt more about dental health and enjoyed receiving a sticker and toothbrush to take home.
All families received a letter after the visit with recommendations for their child.
Receiving dental care, treatment and information keeps children’s teeth strong and healthy for life.

Last term the grade 5/6’s were invited to enter into a competition for ‘Latitude’ which is a trampoline and aerial activity centre in Heidelberg. Kids (and big kids) can bounce, climb and fly. The competition is called ‘Think. Design. Win.’ Many schools were invited to enter and they needed to make a design for a blank wall for the bungee jumping space. 3 of our student’s entries have been shortlisted! These are Azra’s, Lulu’s and Kayla’s designs.
