Welcome to our School
Welcome to Fawkner Primary School, a caring and nurturing learning environment. Our dedicated and experienced teachers provide a positive and enriching program, appreciating the individual needs and interests of each child.
Lorne Street Kindergarten is managed by the Northern Schools Early Years Cluster Inc. and is located within the grounds of Fawkner Primary School.
Our Kindergarten opened in January 2016.
We offer sessions for three-year old children (one four-hour session a week) and four-year old children (three five-hour sessions a week).
Within the precinct we also have a Maternal Child Health Nurse and a playgroup.
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.
Certificates of achievement 30’s and 40’s club. Congratulations all students.
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 Thursday the 27th of July Foundation C and Foundation A celebrated 100 days of school. This was a fantastic day!
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.
