Ideally we would like every child to be able to complete some reading at home and some other work that may help them with their schoolwork. However we appreciate that every child is different, every family is different and everyone’s circumstances are different. The school understands that some children thoroughly enjoy doing extra work at home, while others have other interests that mean they struggle to complete extra work. Therefore we feel that the amount of homework done at home by any child is a decision for the family.
The health and developmental well-being of our students is vital to their success at school. Fawkner Primary School is committed to promoting healthy living principles for children in a framework that supports good health and builds confidence and self- esteem.
High attendance is a major predictor for academic success. At Fawkner Primary School, we strive to ensure that students have the best opportunities to learn.
