Kinder to school transition

Bunyip Primary School prides itself on community involvement and placing the needs and values of our students first. We are aware that the transition to primary school is a very exciting time for your little ones. Along with the excitement can come nerves and some uncertainty as to what to expect in their first year of school. Therefore, it is our pleasure to offer you and our future Prep students every possible opportunity to appease those nerves, to provide opportunities to feel a sense of belonging and to above all, be excited to start next year with every success.


Our school zone is available on which hosts the most up-to-date information on school zones in Victoria.

Students residing within our school zone are guaranteed a place at our school, which is determined on the basis of your permanent residential address.

Our school manages enrolments using the Placement Policy to ensure that students have access to their designated neighbourhood school and may enrol at another school, if there are available places.
