It all starts in Foundation… 

At Bundarra Primary School our aim is to develop confident, creative, independent and self-directed thinkers and learners. Ngatanwarr/ Welcome to the Bundarra family!

“Be Your Best Self!”

We believe that each child is highly competent, capable and resourceful and that not all children learn the same thing in the same way, at the same time and at the same rate. We provide opportunities for children to become engaged in rich and varied learning experiences that respect and suit their stage of development and promote the growth of the whole child, emotional, social, language, cognitive, spiritual and physical.  Children make connections and develop deep understandings in meaningful contexts that are of interest to them.  They have a sense of belonging and strong motivation to participate.

At Bundarra Primary School we understand Foundation is critical for cultivating a love of learning. It is for this reason that we encourage play-based learning in our Wonder Room. Play-based learning is a program which uses play as a context for learning. In this context, children are encouraged to explore, experiment, discover and solve problems. The Wonder Room also brings the child’s awareness towards literacy and numeracy through hands on learning. For example, pattern making, counting, number and letter writing etc. In addition, children are afforded the opportunity to develop social skill such as cooperation, sharing and responding to ideas, negotiating, and resolving conflict.

It has enabled us to help children forge stronger relationships with their peers and with us, it has shown us sides to your children we would hardly get to see,  and most importantly it has presented us with a group of children who are happy and engaged and eager to learn. We love our Wonder Room!

The current school enrolment is 92 students from the local neighbourhood and many ride bikes, scooters or walk to school. Some students do catch local town bus networks to get to school and we have a small proportion of children who catch country buses.

Students may enrol and attend school if they are five years old on or before 30th April that year.  A child must, by law, attend school at the age of six (6). All enrolment forms need to be filled out before your child can attend Bundarra Primary School, we also require a copy of your child’s Immunisation records and Birth Certificate. We recommend students attend their closest neighbourhood school. More information on this can be found at Find My School:
