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 are thrilled to announce our Fawkner Primary School Leadership team! Our Student Leadership team have many responsibilities at our school. They have the opportunity to organise fundraisers to raise money and be part of many special events that help support Fawkner Primary School. We are looking forward to having you represent us in 2019. Congratulations to you all!
On the 25th of February, we had a special visitor attend our school. The weather reporter from Channel 10, Mike Larkan, delivered the daily weather and involved students from Fawkner Primary School.
At Fawkner Primary School, our aim is to ensure our Foundation students are feeling comfortable and happy within their learning environment. Our classrooms are designed to be colourful and bright to help our students feel safe and eager to learn within their own classroom. Our teachers cater for the needs of all the students within the Foundation area, we strive to do this by developing personal learning programs for each child which allows the children to feel safe and relaxed.
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.
