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.
The School's enrolment currently stands at 240, with students from a variety of backgrounds, demonstrating the multi cultural aspect of our school. Our Specialist Programs consist of Visual Arts, Performing Arts, LOTE, Physical Education, and a dedicated Science Program. An English as a Second Language (ESL) program operates throughout the school and provides opportunities for students to have further focused instruction in English.

Whilst there are no zoning issues for our school at present, parents are encouraged to enrol their child as early as possible. School tours are available with our Principal, Ms Lee Pollard, on request. You may like to meet with our Principal, Ms Lee Pollard, to arrange to tour our classrooms and grounds. Our tours, amongst other things, provide extensive information regarding our curriculum, specialist programs, and general classroom information, as well as giving you the opportunity to view the school and classes in action, and answer any queries you may have.
