Nestled in farmland between Maffra and Sale, Bundalaguah Primary School holds true to the sense of community – established in 1872 the small school has played a part in the lives of hundreds of children and families and is the feature of fond memories. All of those currently involved in the school wish to continue that legacy and provide the best educational opportunities for all our students.


With literacy and numeracy at the forefront of our learning programs, educators at Bundalaguah Primary School are committed to providing a multi-disciplinary approach to learning. We create experiences in and out of the classroom to expand our students engagement and motivation through authentic real world applications. We seek to educate creatively, experientially and with care.


Our students have opportunities to develop their voice and agency through leading meetings and assemblies. They can contribute to the design of the school and assist in planning co- curricular activities. They proudly represent our school at events and functions. Our students are welcoming of others and strive to be their best.


The Victorian Curriculum provides the framework for curriculum at Bundalaguah Primary School and with small class sizes we are able to tailor the curriculum to the needs and interests of our students.

Literacy and numeracy are integral to the foundational learning. The school uses the systematic synthetic phonics program, Jolly Phonics and 6+1 Writing Traits, along with readers and writers notebooks and inquiry learning foci.

There is a Maths Specialist onsite and the school is part of the High Achievers program.

Science, PE, Technology and Indonesian are also part of the weekly program.

Students attend specialist classes, Art, Music, Drama and Library (with the MARC Van).

We are a School Wide Positive Behaviour Support and Respectful Relationships school.

Bundalaguah Primary is part of the Sporting Schools Program and proud recipients of the Arts Centre First Call Fund.

Bundalaguah Primary School also join with 7 other Rural Cluster Schools in the area for Camps, Life Education Days, Swimming and Athletic Sports. This gives children the opportunity to mix and make friendship groups with others.
