Computers available for sale

Dear parents and friends of Fawkner Primary School.

As part of our ongoing maintenance and upkeep of our digital technologies at Fawkner Primary School, we have several laptops in excess of requirements. We are offering these to families from our school who may need a computer at home.

The laptops are mid-2012 Macbook Pros that have been in use in the grade 1&2 classes: Core i5, 4GB RAM, 500GB hard drive, SuperDrive.

They will cost $275 including GST, which is a significant discount.

There are very few of them available so if you are interested, please contact the school as soon as possible.

The school also has several Windows desktop computers available for sale – these are 8 to 10 years old but may be useful for internet browsing or word processing. They may be purchased for $55 each including mouse, keyboard, monitor and computer.

Dental Screening at Fawkner Primary

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.

To learn more about Merri Health Dental Services call the dental team on (03) 9387 6711

Latitude competition – Vote for Fawkner!

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.
