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 residential 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 300, 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 seek 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.

Social Enterprise Program…
…not just from inside the classroom.
The Social Enterprise Program at Bundoora Primary School is an important component of student learning, creating global citizens and community engagement.
Our Mission Statement
To Provide Our Students With The Skills To Become Confident And Capable Global Citizens.
Each year our Year 5/6 students research proposed charities to focus on supporting. The charities are then shortlisted and decided upon by our Social Enterprise Team of students and staff. Typically we support two international charities, one national charity, a state charity and a local charity.
As part of the program students also run the Social Enterprise Cafe each morning in conjunction with the Breakfast Program.
