Schools AustraliaÂ introduces Fitzroy Community School in Fitzroy North, for all your education and learning needs.
The motto of Fitzroy Community School is "People Before Things" and this sums up the spirit of the school community.
FCS is an independent, alternative primary school. It has its own unique style of operation. Our school has a relaxed atmosphere and good outcomes at the same time. Children are keen on learning and keen on coming to school. The most common comment that visitors make is that it feels like an extended family.
FCS aims for three outcomes in terms of its students and graduates: happiness, viability and academic excellence. We feel that these qualities offer the best chance of a happy, fulfilling and engaging life. The culture of the school supports the achievement of these qualities, and we are overjoyed that our students and graduates demonstrate them. A big part of this is our emphasis on confidence and effective communication skills. These are not so much taught as learned through the daily lifestyle of the school.
FCS was founded in 1976 by Philip O'Carroll and Faye Berryman in their home at 597 Brunswick Street, North Fitzroy and still operates there. The school is eternally indebted to them for not only the gift of their home, but also for their energy and commitment over four decades.
Prospective parents are welcome to come and have a casual look through the school at almost any time. Simply phone to make a mutually convenient time.
Welcome to Fitzroy Community School one of the popular educators in your Fitzroy North area. Our aim is help you in your learning journey.
We endeavour to celebrate each otherâ€™s uniqueness by providing opportunity for all and to develop a culture that identifies that the journey towards excellence is often paved with trial and error, risk taking, learning from mistakes, flexibility and adaptability.Â We believe that encouraging students to take ownership of the learning is critical in achieving the best learning outcomes and that implicit in this concept is that students learn their own areas of strength and areas of development, through useful and explicit feedback.
