Purpose & Values

At Bundoora Primary School, our core purpose is to provide students with the best possible learning environment to ensure that they are able to reach their full potential as learners. Our school aims to provide an education that caters for every student’s academic, social, emotional and physical needs. Our teaching staff are highly trained, caring professionals who are focussed on delivering a curriculum that is individually tailored to meet the needs of all students. Our students are provided with comprehensive programs in Literacy, Numeracy, Science and Informatoin Technology, as well as other areas of the Victorian curriculum. We have Specialist Programs that include Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Physical Education, Language Other than English (LOTE), English as a Second Language, and a High Achievers Group. We have intervention programs that support students in their learning, especially in literacy and numeracy.

Each student’s individuality is recognised and celebrated at Bundoora Primary School, which boasts a caring, community environment where families can share in the attention to learning and happiness. We offer a variety of extra curricular activities, including a well-developed Student Leadership Porogram, Mathletics, Lunchtime Clubs, individual music lessons, a variety of sports activities and links with local sporting organisations, as well as our House System which promotes a sense of belonging and pride in our students.

For our younger students, our Buddy Program is very popular, helping students to become comfortable and offering wonderful connections all around. We have received terrific feedback from parents who have found our Year 5 and 6 students to be very friendly and caring.

We aim to equip our students with the skills and knowledge that will serve as the foundations for life-long learning in an ever changing world. Our purpose is underpinned by our values of:

  • Respect
  • Excellence
  • Resilience
  • Friendship
  • Cooperation

Our values are promoted and supported throughout our school, in every learning and play situation.Our staff are committed to excellence in education and create a caring atmosphere in each classroom, along with a challenging learning program where all students can maximise their learning potential. We encourage our students to be well organised, independent learners who use the wide variety of tools available to them to reach their learning goals.

Our Out of School Hours Care Program is very popular amongst our students, which operates each morning and afternoon, as well as Pupil Free Days. While in out of school hours care, our students enjoy craft, cooking, sporting activities, homework/reading opportunities, as well as excursions to the local farm, parks and tenpin bowling alley during Pupil Free Days.

There are many ways in which parents can become a part of their child’s education at Bundoora Primary School, through, classroom assistance/reading, canteen volunteering, excursion assistance, School Council, or becoming part of our Parents & Friends team, to name a few.
