About our school

Looking for a great primary school in Bundoora?

Bundoora Primary School is situated in the residential suburb of Bundoora, in the north-east of Melbourne. Bordering Gresswell Forest and Bundoora Secondary College campus, our school is also close to La Trobe University and RMIT University. Our Specialist Programs consist of  Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Auslan, Physical Education and STEM. An English as an Additional Language (EAL) program operates throughout the school and provides opportunities for students to have further focused instruction in English. We also operate a Reading Recovery program for students who require extra support.

At Bundoora Primary School, each child’s individuality is recognised and celebrated. Our teaching staff are caring professionals who work collaboratively and are passionate about providing the very best learning environment for each and every student. We have high expectations of our students in all areas of their learning and behaviour. Our teachers have an extremely rigorous approach to assessing and monitoring our students’ learning, which shows in our excellent statewide data that demonstrates our dedication to support students to improve their skills. We are focused on ensuring each student is taught at their point of need and our teachers make frequent adjustments to their teaching and learning programs to suit individual needs. 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.

We provide extra assistants in our classrooms, through our Education Support Officers. They offer individual and small group learning support throughout the school. Our Education Support Officers provide literacy and numeracy support across the school to those students who have English as a second language or who have specific learning needs.

Our Social Enterprise Program has become an initiative our students and staff are extremely proud of, giving our students, from Prep to Year 6, the opportunity to support various charities and people in need, while gaining knowledge and confidence in basic business processes. Please visit our Social Enterprise Program page for more information.

Our school also provides an array of extra curricula activities, including a well developed Student Leadership Program, Breakfast Club, Lunchtime Clubs, individual music lessons, a variety of sports activities and links with sporting organisations. We also boast the Bundoora Primary School House System which promotes a sense of belonging and pride and provides students with fun activities, throughout the year, to gain points for their House.

We have a very successful Out of School Hours Care program which runs every morning and afternoon, as well as on pupil free days. Our popular Breakfast Club provides yummy nutritional food for those hungry tummies, allowing our students (and parents) to further socialise each morning to gain confidence.

At Bundoora Primary School our values underpin our purpose to equip students with the skill to become life-long learners. Our five values are:

  • Respect
  • Excellence
  • Resilience
  • Friendship
  • Cooperation

Scholarships of Excellence are awarded to students who demonstrate exemplary effort and excellence in relation to one or more of our school values. The monetary component of the scholarship is put towards supporting each recipient’s education. The awards are announced at the end of each school year.

We are very proud of what we do at Bundoora Primary School.
