On Thursday the 27th of July Foundation C and Foundation A celebrated 100 days of school. This was a fantastic day!
On Tuesday the 13th of June, Foundation C and Foundation A went on an excursion to the Collingwood Children’s Farm. We were all very excited as our Integrated Studies topic this semester has been about ‘Farm Animals’.
On Friday the 19th of May grades 3/4 A and G had an exciting excursion at The Royal Melbourne Zoo. All of the 3/4’s participated in a challenge called the ‘Local Legends’. The challenge was to spot five endangered animals which were the Philippines crocodile, long nosed fur seal, the Helmeted Honey Eater, the Corroboree Frog and the Lord Howe Island stick insect. We also had to come up with some ideas to try and save these animals.
Congratulations and well done to all the students who attended and represented Fawkner Primary School at the Glenroy District Cross Country event on Thursday 25th May. Our school competed with 10 other schools on the day.
Grade 6 students from Fawkner Primary School were invited to visit Maygar Barracks to commemorate the Battle of Villers-Bretonneux, where many Australian soldiers lost their lives during World War 1.
Grades 1 and 2 held a ‘Teddy Bear Picnic’ day on Thursday March 30, 2017. What a great way to celebrate the end of our Integrated Studies unit on ‘Toys and Games’ and the end of Term 1.
On Tuesday the 14th of March 2017, the 5/6’s went to the Royal Botanic Gardens.
We caught the train from Fawkner Station to Flinders Street and then walked along St. Kilda Road. When we got to the gardens, we also saw The Shrine of Remembrance.
It has been an exciting week starting school!
All 45 students were very eager and full of energy to start Foundation at Fawkner Primary School.
Miss A. and Miss Carmody could not have asked for a better week with their beautiful new students!
There was lots of social and developmental learning. Students got to know all their teachers and new friends at our school.
We are very excited for all the learning and growth that 2017 has to bring!
