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.
Foundation and Foundation/One are extremely lucky to have Ms. Heidi come and help develop the children’s garden skills and eat fresh, grown fruit and vegetables from our own veggie garden!
On Wednesday the 9th of March the whole school took part in a Walkathon.
The Better Buddies Program involves Foundation and Grade 6 students meeting every Thursday afternoon to work together on various activities throughout the year.
Students have been busy in Visual Arts this term.
Our Gr. 1/2 classes have been using chalk pastels and creating a big mess but had lots of fun exploring! Students traced and made their own paper shape stencils then used a rubbing technique to create shapes onto their paper. Here are some samples for you to see!
Foundation C and F/1 A had a fantastic first week at Fawkner Primary School!
We live in a world surrounded by technology. And we know that whatever field our students choose to go into as adults, their ability to succeed will increasingly hinge on understanding how technology works. But only a tiny fraction of us are learning computer science, and less students are studying it than a decade ago.
That’s why our entire school is joining in on the largest learning event in history: The Hour of Code, during Computer Science Education Week (Dec. 7-13). More than 100 million students worldwide have already tried an Hour of Code.
Our Hour of Code is a statement that Fawkner Primary School is ready to teach these foundational 21st century skills.
This is a chance to change the future of education in Fawkner.

Congratulations to Prep student Batul and her parent – Sakina – who were the winning family of the Community Grocer fruit and vegetable box!
Batul and her family walked to school for the healthy breakfast on Thursday, 29th of October.
