Walkathon and Healthy Breakfast at Fawkner Primary School!

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.

Walk Safely To School

Fawkner PS has been working with Merri Health and Moreland City Council to develop safe walking routes to and from school, and safe areas to cross the roads.

Please see the map to see where it is safest for you and your children to walk to school, and where the safest place to cross the road is.

Walk Safely To School Day

Fawkner Primary School is excited to celebrate Walk Safely to School Day in 2018!

On Thursday 17 May, we are encouraging Fawkner Primary families to walk, ride or scoot to school.

A healthy breakfast for family, staff and students will take place at 8.15am at the school, with lots of games and fun for the whole family!

For those who live too far away to walk or ride, we are organising a ‘Park & Walk’ location at Mutton Reserve (Lorne St Carpark). Students can be dropped off, and will be escorted safely to school together.

We need your help!

If you would like to help with the healthy breakfast, please let us know on the day.

Giant footpath stickers

Currently we are developing a set of giant footpath stickers, to assist students to walk and ride safely to school all year round. The stickers, designed by Grades 5 and 6 students, will be installed prior to Walk Safely to School Day.

On the day families will receive maps of the decal routes. Families are encouraged to walk to routes with their children so that they feel comfortable and safe.
