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.
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.
It has been an exciting week starting school!
All 45 students were very eager and full of energy to start Foundation at Fawkner Primary School.
Miss A. and Miss Carmody could not have asked for a better week with their beautiful new students!
There was lots of social and developmental learning. Students got to know all their teachers and new friends at our school.
We are very excited for all the learning and growth that 2017 has to bring!
