Welcome to Bunyip Primary School

Bunyip Primary School has a strong history that dates back to over 140 years.  It is the heart of the Bunyip community.  It is my privilege to be the Principal of such a wonderful school community.


The school prides itself in the way it nurtures students in their well-being and academic ability.  Bunyip PS has fantastic facilities.  There are wide open spaces for students outdoors, encouraging a variety of play options as well as open learning spaces within the classroom settings.  We have and value active partnerships with the wider community and well-established links between home and school.  We highly value family participation and involvement within the school.


Our School values of Respect, Responsibility and Resilience underpin the positive school climate and strong community culture at our school and link directly to our school vision “To empower students to embrace learning, achieve their personal best and build their emotional, social and physical wellbeing.” We employ a positive approach to learning, engagement and wellbeing through our School Wide Positive Behaviour Support (SWPBS) approach. This includes an explicitly taught social/emotional learning curriculum that integrates with the academic curriculum and is strongly linked to our school values and expectations. We have a tiered whole school approach to student wellbeing that includes all students in the development of proactive strategies that focus on the promotion of constructive relationships, resilience and targeted wellbeing support for individual students when needed.

At Bunyip Primary School, all students are provided with strong academic programs, which are tailored to meet the individual needs of the child. Our staff have strong relationships with each and every child.  Our teachers use research and evidence based approaches to teaching and learning and monitor student progress utilising a range of data. We offer specialist programs in Visual Arts, Performing Arts, Digital Technologies, Science, Library and Physical Education, as well as a vast array of extra-curricular activities including camps, excursions, swimming, Bike Education, inter-school sports and instrumental music lessons.

I invite you to make a booking for a school tour and I would be more than happy to showcase our wonderful school.
