History:

St. Francis de Sales Catholic Primary School, Lynbrook, opened in January 2010 with an enrolment of 85 students. The school is situated in a rapidly developing area in the South East of Melbourne with a current enrolment of 395. The majority of the students are from the Lynbrook and Lyndhurst suburbs with a small number from surrounding areas. It is the second school in the Parish of St. Kevin, Hampton Park. Father Shanthaiah Marneni, MSFS, was Parish Priest at the commencement of the school¡¦s operation in 2010. Father Albert Yogarajah became Parish Priest in April 2010 and continues to be a wonderful faith leader.


Description:

St. Francis de Sales School is visibly Christocentric and focuses on the ¡§promotion of the human person¡¦, the integration of faith and life and the learning of each student through an active student centred paradigm. We at St. Francis de Sales intend to uphold and build upon our strong Catholic identity by:
„h
- strengthening supportive relationships „h
- empowering and engaging the school community „h
- developing a shared understanding of Learning and Teaching

The ¡§School Vision¡¨ with contributions from all stakeholders (students, parents and staff) is at the centre of our work each and every day and truly reflects the hopes and aspirations of our community. The school Discipline Policy encompasses the living of key values. These values were selected by families, prior to the school opening, and are based on the gospels and the life and work of St. Francis de Sales. A strong sense of belonging is fostered and student connectedness is heightened.


Features:

There has been three stages in the school building program that was completed in 2014. The school¡¦s built environment makes adequate provision of space for general education, collaboration and specialised services, and is conducive to generating quality learning outcomes.

We are fortunate to have three flexible Contemporary Learning Spaces each comprising of a large common learning space, art area, breakout rooms and staff work areas. Each Learning Space accommodates students from Foundation to Year 6. The students are then allocated to Foundation to Year 2 or Year 3 to Year 6 groupings within the learning space. The implementation of current pedagogy ensures the highest quality personalised learning experiences, based on a contemporary curriculum, within a strongly supportive social environment.

The administration block is designed with an open and welcoming space, reception area, bursar¡¦s office, sick bay facilities, conference room, staffroom and a community room. The community room is a wonderful space where small masses may be conducted and community events can be held. Playing areas are extensive and along with covered playing equipment provides our students with great choice and variety in recreational opportunities
