National Ride2School Day is Friday March 17

On Friday 17 March 2017  Fawkner Primary be celebrating National Ride2School Day, where over 350,000 Australian students, just like yours, will ride, walk, scoot or skate to school.

In the 1970s, eight out of ten students rode or walked to school. That number has dropped to just two out of ten.

Parents, relive the past. National Ride2School Day is the perfect opportunity for us all to ditch the car and embrace a happier and healthier start to the day by riding and walking to school.

The purpose of National Ride2School Day is to show that riding to school is an easy and fun activity. Of course remember your child needs to wear a helmet, bring a bike lock and is accompanied by an adult or guardian if they are a junior school member riding to school. Make sure you follow the road rules and be alert at driveways. We also recommend helmets for those on scooters or skateboards.

If you live far away, consider riding part of the way to school. Perhaps from a friend’s place?

Come on everybody. Let’s add to the increasing number of bikes and scooters ridden to school. You may even see some teachers joining in the fun.

A healthy, yummy prize will be awarded to the class with the highest percentage of riders and walkers on this day.

The River Red Gum Conference

On Wednesday 17th November students from 3/4 A and G went on a bus to South Morang for our River Red Gum Conference. While we were there we met students from four other schools. The schools were St Peter’s, St Mary’s, Oak Park and Hazel Glen College.

Code Studio

At Fawkner Primary School, we’ve embraced the new Digital Technology curriculum and our kids have been learning lots of code!

The students have been so engaged that many want to put their free time into additional learning!

If your kids want something fun and educational to do over the holidays, check out Code Studio.

5 Day Plastic Bag Challenge

Members of the Student Sustainability Team carried a plastic bag with anything we couldn’t recycle for 5 days in May. We learnt that most of us had food waste like banana peels that doesn’t need to go in the bin if we could compost it and use it in the garden. We also learnt to reduce the amount of waste we make by choosing things that could be recycled or even better produced no waste.

We would like to try and get a compost bin so that we can produce less waste than we do now. Please support us.
