The ninth issue of Fawkner News for 2017 is now available!
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’.
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.
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.
