Our school is home to a broad range of excellent facilities. These include two computer labs, library, science room, spacious grounds, a brand new building which consists of up to four large, heated state of the art classrooms – along with a communal area, and a beautiful undercover area with artificial grass and fairy garden. Students are able to practise their skills over our basketball, netball and four-square courts, as well as practise their football skills with our newly installed football goal posts and soccer goals. Our school boasts three playground equipment areas which are very popular with our students.
Our secure, dedicated prep playground is overlooked by a beautiful mural, painted by students from La Trobe University, depicting our beautiful surroundings of Gresswell Forest and a view of Melbourne City. Our students enjoy our beautiful school grounds, and all three of our playgrounds, during school days and after school, as well as during the weekends and school holidays. We will often find families enjoying our grounds having biked or walked together from around our neighbourhood. We are proud of our well maintained grounds and playground areas, which are covered by shade sails, allowing sunsafe play all year round. Our large sandpit area is a popular play area for our junior students, as they further their imagination.
We are very excited that construction has begun for our new $3.2 million building! One of the best things about this build is that our students and school programs will experience very little (if any) disruption during construction. We look forward to opening the doors to a fantastic, modern new building, which will house our Administration offices, Performing Arts Centre, OSHC Room, Canteen, and a fabulous large hall. Watch this space as we upload progress photos.
Custom painted, colourful bollards, representing our Bundoora Primary School community and values, adorn the entrance way to our school foyer. Our welcoming signage is displayed at each entry point of our school, along with our colourful bollards, which match our many beautiful murals we have around our school. You’ll even see several hand-painted & created pieces of artwork.
Our Performing Arts Centre (PAC) has recently undergone renovations, including installing new blinds and carpet, painting, new storage cupboards and mirror tiles – creating an exceptional learning environment for all of our budding performers.
Our Visual Arts Centre is constantly changing with new and awe-inspiring displays of artwork created by our students. We proudly display our students’ artwork throughout our school, which is specifically showcased at our bi-annual Art Exhibition. The Bundoora Primary ‘gallery’ also extends to the exterior of our buildings in the form of murals and special tiles, created as parting gifts from our departing Year 6 students.
Our Library has an extensive range of books and study materials that students are able to refer to and borrow during their dedicated library sessions. Our book supplies are refreshed at various times throughout the year to allow our students to continue to be engaged and excited about reading. Colourful tables and chairs are kept in our library, as well as colourful comfortable cushions, to keep our students relaxed and content during their reading time.
During the warmer months, you may see classes being conducted, for a short time, outside beneath the warmth of the sunshine and amongst our beautiful gardens.
We have a well equipped First Aid room. All Bundoora Primary staff members have Level 2 First Aid Training with current CPR and Anaphylaxis certification.
Our Canteen is open each Wednesday, Thursday and Friday and provides the Bundoora Primary School community with a great range of healthy lunches and snacks, which includes freshly prepared hot and cold food. The canteen also provides opportunity for parent/carer volunteers to be involved in the school. We also offer special ‘treat’ days each term, such as Hot Cross Bun Day, Pasta Day, and Footy Day.
