What's happening at FGPS
Thank you to all families that helped their children log in to Google Classroom on Wednesday morning, and thank you to those who called the school to troubleshoot and get your children online.
We will be contacting the families of children who don't log on Wednesday to see if they need any support in getting their child online. You can call us this week if you believe you will need support to get your child online.
If after the School Holidays we still are not allowed to have students return to school, support for online learning will be available by emailing Mr Hatfield or Mr Cullen (Email addresses were at the bottom of the sheet that went home to all families).
These are unprecedented times. We will do our very best to support your child's education and wellbeing in every way possible. Thank you for your support.
Stay safe, best wishes,
The Victorian government has decided to bring forward the start of the school holidays to Tuesday 24th March. No children will be at school from the 24th March up to and including the 14th April.
Term 2 will start on Wednesday 15th April.

"Fountain Gate Primary School is a community of active, focused learners who share their curiosity, voice and expertise with others."
- Our Vision
A message from the Principal...
If you are a new member of our school community, I would like to personally welcome you to Fountain Gate Primary School. I trust that your child’s educational journey will be rewarding and successful. We have a strong emphasis on children’s safety and happiness, and a concerted effort is made to ensure that each child achieves to the best of their ability, especially in the “basics” of Literacy and Numeracy. The core purpose of a Primary School is to be the bridge from the home into the wider world, and to foster the skills, knowledge and attitudes that will help children succeed now and into the future.
Fountain Gate Primary School has excellent facilities and resources, but most importantly it has a very dedicated staff who know each child as an individual, and strive to create conditions where each child will thrive. We value partnerships with parents, grandparents and carers, and encourage you to stay in contact with us regarding your child’s progress and wellbeing.
The Primary School years are very special in the life of a child. The foundations that we build together, will have a profound influence on them as learners and as people. Welcome!
