A day in the life of a Foundation student at F.P.S


Have a watch with your child and see what a typical day can look like at Footscray Primary School.


Lots of commonly asked questions like; What does eating time look like? Where will my bag go? How do we know where to play in the yard? Are answered in this video.


Thanks to our 2020 Foundation stars Leneisha, Chinh Duong, Max and Anika for their fantastic participation.
