Principal's Message

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Bungaree Primary School, where it is my privilege to be the principal of such a wonderful small school (with big opportunities!).


Bungaree Primary School is an inviting, inclusive and vibrant school, offering quality learning opportunities in an engaging learning environment where we aim to achieve the best possible outcomes in student learning. Our school provides a learning environment where children can have fun, progress in their learning and develop their creativity and curiosity. We offer a school setting where our children feel cared for and valued.


We are particularly proud of the Bungaree Primary School’s reputation as a caring school community, allowing children to grow emotionally, intellectually and physically in a safe, attractive and caring learning environment. This is supported by our four school values which we walk and talk in our little school community – Respect, Positivity, Determination and Creativity.


Our School is organised into two learning communities with a focus on student personalised learning.

  • Junior Classroom – Foundation to Year 2
  • Senior Classroom – Year 3 to Year 6.

Bungaree Primary School provides many specialist programs that are supported with professional teachers and facilities for The Arts, Physical Education and Languages Other Than English (Auslan). Furthermore, the students have access to an exciting array of extra- and intra-curriculum programs that enhance personal and academic achievement within the school, and also in partnership with other small schools in the Wathaurung Network and Moorabool Collegiate Group.


I proudly invite you to explore our website to become familiar with the school’s many exciting opportunities, and to call our school to experience the Bungaree way.
