The River Red Gum Conference

On Wednesday 17th November students from 3/4 A and G went on a bus to South Morang for our River Red Gum Conference. While we were there we met students from four other schools. The schools were St Peter’s, St Mary’s, Oak Park and Hazel Glen College.

5 Day Plastic Bag Challenge

Members of the Student Sustainability Team carried a plastic bag with anything we couldn’t recycle for 5 days in May. We learnt that most of us had food waste like banana peels that doesn’t need to go in the bin if we could compost it and use it in the garden. We also learnt to reduce the amount of waste we make by choosing things that could be recycled or even better produced no waste.

We would like to try and get a compost bin so that we can produce less waste than we do now. Please support us.

The Student Sustainability Team

Health and Wellbeing

For many years, Fawkner Primary School has committed to improving the health and wellbeing of its students, staff and community.

We are currently working towards becoming a Healthy School as part of the State Government’s Healthy Together Achievement Program, with a focus on healthy eating and oral health.

This includes a healthy eating policy, teaching about healthy foods in the classroom, and improving our canteen.

Everyone can play a role in helping to improve nutrition and health outcomes for our school community. If would like to be involved, please contact Maria Weston (Assistant Principal).
