About our school
Bundoora Primary School is situated in the residential suburb of Bundoora, in the north-east of Melbourne. Our school is surrounded by Gresswell Forest, established areas, the adjacent Bundoora Secondary College campus, Strathallan Golf Course and the new Gresswell Grange Estate. We are close to La Trobe University, RMIT Bundoora and the Metropolitan Ring Road.

If you have a Prep 2017 child we urge you to contact us as soon as possible, as enrolments are due now. If you have a Prep 2018 or 2019 child, we encourage you to check our website later in the year for Term 1 2017 school tours.
