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.
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.
Foundation C and F/1A had a fantastic time during ‘My World’ excursion! We went to Jukes Road Fawkner to see the community and surroundings of our lovely area.
Our school values underpin everything that we do at Fawkner Primary School and are part of everyday life for the staff, students and families.
We promote the school as a safe, fun learning environment where every child is valued and all children are challenged to achieve their best. Our values uphold everything we do at Fawkner Primary, and help to maintain our integrity for being the best school members we can be.
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.
