Principal’s Message

Welcome to Fawkner Primary School. Our school is very friendly and welcoming, the staff is extremely dedicated and professional and the children are wonderful. People who visit us always comment on what a great feel there is around the school.

Academically the students are performing extremely well. In the most recent NAPLAN tests our students were well above the state average in all language areas which is tremendously positive, and a credit to all involved with the school. The teachers place special emphasis on learning Language skills (especially reading and comprehension) as well as Numeracy as we recognise that all children need to learn how to read and solve every-day mathematical problems to survive.

We pride ourselves on looking after all children and catering to the needs of all abilities. We are also proud that we are educating our children with 21st century technology. We utilise interactive whiteboards, desktop and laptop computers, video cameras, animation programs etc. to ensure our children are prepared for an ICT rich world. The children use these every day in their classrooms as educational tools that help to motivate and engage them.

We would love to show you around our school, and are happy to make an appointment at any time. Please feel free to contact us so we can share our school with you.
