Our students are changing the future with an Hour of Code

We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly depend on understanding how technology works.

But only a tiny fraction of us are learning how technology works. Only 35% of all high schools teach computer science.

That’s why our entire school joined in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code. More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code. Our Hour of Code is making a statement that Fawkner Primary School is ready to teach these foundational 21st-century skills.

100 Days of School!

On Tuesday, (24.07.18) Foundation A and Foundation C celebrated 100 days of school! They were all very excited to participate in numeracy activities focusing on numbers up to 100. We ended the day with a 100th birthday celebration party!

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.

Ride2School Day!

Fawkner Primary School is having a special Park and Walk Event on Ride2School Day! We invite everyone to meet at Mutton Reserve to walk or ride to school together at 8.30am. We’ll supply a healthy breakfast for all the riders and walkers thanks to Merri Community Health and Moreland Council.
