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 Thursday (13/10/16), Foundation – 2 had their sleepover! 39 students attended this year! We had lots of fun together which included indoor and outdoor activities!
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.
It’s been an amazing Term in Performing Arts. Children have been learning to dance the Nutbush!
On the 18th of August 3/4 G & 3/4 A went to ACMI (Australian Centre for the Moving Image).
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.
