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.
Fawkner Primary School has a learning with technology focus, and we believe that having access to, and being able to use, high quality, up to date, internet capable technology is very important to students in the modern age.
Students in Grades 3 to 6 are assigned a laptop that they use in their classrooms for a wide variety of learning tasks, and these laptops can be leased from the school so that students can take them home to continue their learning.
Moreland City Council is developing a new Moreland Integrated Transport Strategy (MITS).
MITS will focus on what Council can do directly to improve transport in Moreland, such as new or improved routes for pedestrians and cyclists, as well as the most effective ways to work with other bodies with responsibility for transport, such as VicRoads and Public Transport Victoria.
