On Tuesday (20th of March) Foundation A and Foundation C went to the Melbourne Aquarium.
We had a great day learning all about our friends in the sea!
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.
This term Foundation A and Foundation C went to Essendon Traffic School to learn about road and bike safety.
In term 3, a pilot program was delivered at Fawkner Primary School, delivering free dental check-ups for children in Foundation.
The dental team from Merri Health worked with the Youth Health Promotion team to deliver a talk with students about healthy foods, healthy drinks and the importance of brushing your teeth and visiting the dentist, as well as having a dental check.
All Foundation students who participated, learnt more about dental health and enjoyed receiving a sticker and toothbrush to take home.
All families received a letter after the visit with recommendations for their child.
Receiving dental care, treatment and information keeps children’s teeth strong and healthy for life.

Last term the grade 5/6’s were invited to enter into a competition for ‘Latitude’ which is a trampoline and aerial activity centre in Heidelberg. Kids (and big kids) can bounce, climb and fly. The competition is called ‘Think. Design. Win.’ Many schools were invited to enter and they needed to make a design for a blank wall for the bungee jumping space. 3 of our student’s entries have been shortlisted! These are Azra’s, Lulu’s and Kayla’s designs.
On Tuesday 2nd of August, 5/6K and 5/6R went on an excursion to the Victorian Institute of Sport as part of their Integrated Curriculum topic ‘Magnificent Me’.
