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.
We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works.
But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Only 35% of all high schools teach computer science.
That’s why our entire school joined in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code. More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our Hour of Code is making a statement that Fawkner Primary School is ready to teach these foundational 21st-century skills.

On 7th September 2018 Lulu Kheder, Logan Valentine and Syd Greenacre were invited to be a part of the National Child and Youth Forum at Melbourne University.
Here at Fawkner Primary School we think the health of our students is a high priority! Throughout October we’ve been celebrating walking, riding and scooting to school as part of our Active Travel program.
To kick things off on 18th October, in partnership with Moreland Council and Merri Health, we had a special healthy breakfast and our whole-school walkathon fundraiser!
The day was a huge success.
The Department of Education and Training (which includes all Victorian government schools, central and regional offices) values the privacy of every person and is committed to protecting information that schools collect.
As adults we all play a critical role to protect children from harm.
As a parent or carer you have the primary responsibility for protecting and caring for your own children and supporting them to build relationships that are safe and respectful.
You also play a critical role in identifying and responding to suspected abuse within the community. In fact it may amount to a criminal offence if you fail to report suspected sexual child abuse.
Positive, clear and effective processes for resolving grievances between the school and community members assists in the building of strong relationships, dispels anxiety, and ultimately provides students with an enhanced learning environment.
At Fawkner Primary School, the welfare of our students is paramount. Student wellbeing and engagement are a priority and drive our teaching and learning programs. We aim to build strong relationships amongst students, staff, parents and the wider community. We respond to the diverse learning needs of students by encouraging continuous improvement across our learning community and regular evaluation or our school programs. This policy is intended to empower children who are vital and active participants in our inclusive school at Fawkner Primary School.
