Bundalaguah Primary School is a small rural school between the towns of Sale and Maffra on the Maffra/Sale Rd. The school is set amongst farm land in well maintained grounds. The school is 8 kilometres from both Sale and Maffra, so there is no close community. Our school works hard to create a strong connection to school in order to create our own sense of community. The grounds includes native vegetation, garden beds and a vegetable garden.
Our facilities consist of 3 classrooms, Staff-room and a Recreation hall. The Rec hall is a multi-purpose space and the students enjoy music and art there. It is also the place we have Breakfast Club three times a week and Pre-School Playgroup on a Tuesday morning. Our Parent club and School Council meetings are held in the Rec Room, as is our end of year School Concert.
In 2020, our staffing consists of two full-time classroom teachers and one classroom teacher at 0.8 time fraction and one teacher 0.2. The Principal role includes 0.2 time fraction in the classroom. We have three full-time Aides who assist students, and our Business Manager is available in our office 3 days a week.
Each day includes Mathematics with streamed classes where required. Literacy classes with a focus on Phonics based spelling using the Jolly Phonics Program. Writing using the VCOP writing strategies. Other subjects are Science, P.E, Lote, Music, Respectful Relationships and Etiquette.
Sporting Schools Program is organised to run 3 terms a year, at no cost to parents.
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.
