Student Representative Council - Motivational Video
At Fountain Gate Primary School we really care about our students. We believe in having a growth mindset and we incorporate this way of thinking in the daily curriculum. Having a growth mindset helps children learn and grow, as well persisting when facing life’s challenges. At Fountain Gate Primary School we teach children that mistakes are a chance for growth, and that failure doesn’t have to happen if you learn from your mistakes and change your approach next time. We develop strength in our students by educating that nobody is ‘perfect’ and that all feelings are normal.
This video was created by the Student Representative Council in August 2020. The students aim to inspire others to live their best life and always be true to themselves.

Remote Learning Update - August 2nd 2020
I'm sure that you have heard that Victoria is now in a state of disaster.
The government has announced that all schools will have a pupil free day next Tuesday, 4th August. This will mean that teachers and staff will not be online and no students will be at school on this day. The office will still be open so please call 9703 1187 if you have any queries.
It has also been announced that students will not be returning to school this term, and will continue with remote learning until Friday 18th September.
Thank you all Prep-3 parents for coming to school last Friday, handing in completed work and picking up new packs. We will let you know when new packs need to be picked up.
I know that you will be concerned about your child's education, with so much time away from school. We undertake to do everything we possibly can to help them learn at home, and help them catch up on anything they may have missed during this difficult time when we are finally all together again. Please call us if you need to discuss your child's progress.
Warm regards, stay safe,
Contacting the school during the current Remote Learning period
During the Term 3 remote learning period, our office staff will be available on our regular school number, rather than the mobile number we used during the last remote learning period.
The school can be contacted during normal operating hours. The best way to get in touch with us is to call directly on 9703 1187.

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!
