End of Year


It is hard to believe, but this is our final week of school for 2014. Once again, this has been a very successful year at Footscray North Primary School.  We have had our most successful Naplan results ever with above state level for all areas in Year 3 and above state level or at state level for all areas in year 5.  Our school won the Dorothea McKellar poetry award in the primary school section against primary schools across Australia – both government and non-government.  We have continued our close connection with Melbourne University and have strengthened this connection in 2015.


Many of our Year 6 students have achieved both sporting and academic scholarships that will ensure a wonderful start to their secondary school life. These students are:

  • Jessey Wong and Rishi Patel: Academic Scholarship – Maribyrnong Secondary College
  • Nicholas Armatas: Select Entry Program – Footscray City College
  • Bella Reiser Price – Sports Academy Program –Maribyrnong Secondary College
  • Parvathi Selva Ganeshan – Academic Scholarship –Gilmore Girls College
  • Jordan Le – Select Entry Accelerated Program – Mt Alexander College
  • Sachin Harrison – Select Entry Accelerated Program – Maribyrnong Secondary College
  • Nathan Duong – Accelerated Program – Braybrook Secondary College

On behalf of the school community, I would like to congratulate these students on their fantastic achievements .  I would like to thank everyone who is part of our school community – students, parents and teachers – for all of their dedication and hard work throughout this year.


 Ms. Sharon Walker - Principal
