Bundoora Primary 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 285, 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 STEM/Science Program. An English as an Additional Language (EAL) program operates throughout the school and provides opportunities for students to have further focused instruction in English.
At Bundoora Primary, each child’s individuality is recognised and celebrated. We are also very proud to be a KidsMatter School, seeking to nurture happy and balanced children. Our school boasts a caring, community environment where all families can feel that they are a part of something special.
