Specialist Learning Areas
Each student is supported in the development of literacy and maths skills, and also participate in daily exercises to build muscle tone and co-ordination. All students also access fortnightly swimming at Thebarton Aquatic Centre.
Starting Preschool and School
From 2014, there will be a new start date for preschool and school children. This will be the first day of Term 1.
If your child turns five before May 1, they will start school on the first day of Term One in that year. If your child turns five on or after May 1, they will start school on the first day of Term One the following year.
The new start date will mean that all children will have four terms of preschool and four terms of Reception.
Fulham Gardens Primary School students are in the very fortunate position of accessing specialist music.
All Junior Primary students are taught recorder and this is a stepping stone in reading music prior to being invited to participate in the Instrumental Music program.
From year 3 students are able to learn violin and from small group tuition then come together as an orchestra.

In 2013 we developed a Future garden by using recycled household containers as planter boxes. Old boots, ironing boards, television boxes and an assortment of objects became homes for plants and herbs.
Class Gardens. Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Program
Each class has their very own garden patch and our GREEN ARMY of parent and student volunteers make sure the gardens are kept free of weeds and bugs. In 2014 we are participating in two additional programs ( Trees For Life and the Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Program) These have already generated much excitement and will provide valuable learning experiences in planting and maintaining green belts within the school.
Student Leadership/ Student Voice
Student leadership is an important part of the school curriculum. We believe every student has leadership potential and as such we engage students in leadership training activities.
Through student leadership training, students are taught the skills of decision making, problem solving and how to perform the various roles in a committee and meeting structure. These roles consist of chairperson, secretary, finance, minute taker and observer/ timekeeper.
All classes conduct class meetings where issues, suggestions and ideas are raised for consideration during Student Governing Council meeting. Each class has 2 representatives who are elected by fellow class mates.
We believe students play an important role in setting school directions and are able to influence school events and improvements.
The students at
Bring along unwanted newspapers and drop them into the large green bins with the money tree label. Transpacific collect these regularly and the money raised goes back into student fundraising.
Rings for Limbs
PLEASE save the ring pulls from soft drink cans and send them along to the school. The Prosthesis Foundation of Thailand produces prosthetic limbs by using the scarp metal or the money raised by selling the scrap aluminium. 2,500 rings provide approximately 1kg of aluminium. These can be dropped off at the front office.
