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 292, 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.

Dates to Remember
World Hunger Evening
“Dinner in the shoes of a stranger”
Friday night saw the Social Enterprise Team take things to a whole new level with the World Hunger Evening. The evening was filled with information about world hunger and poverty and a presentation from Richie, who explained how his organisation, The Living Room, supports people experiencing homelessness in Melbourne. The team was also able to present Richie with a cheque for $5000 that has been raised by the Social Enterprise Program so far this year. That is just incredible. Click here for more information.
Our 45 minute Kindy sessions are designed for kinder-aged children (3-4 year old) to help them to become familiar in a school-type setting.
