Dear families,

A very warm welcome to Bungendore Public School. 

Just like many of you, I am relatively new to Bungendore Public School, having started here in Term 2 of 2021. During my short time at BPS, I have been impressed by the friendly, welcoming community that Bungendore is, and I am sure that you will experience the same.

Bungendore Public School is a school steeped in history, and we work hard to maintain a strong sense of community pride and comradery amongst the students, staff and families. 

As you walk through the school grounds and enter the learning spaces, you will be greeted by the sound of laughter and observe the thirst and enthusiasm for learning and inquiry that each school day brings. It is this that makes each day a joy. 

Bungendore PS will soon embark on an exciting new phase, with the new high school to be built just across the road and upgrades made to our own school oval and learning spaces. The children at BPS will be so fortunate to experience the fantastic facilities, resources and learning opportunities that the unique partnership between our school and the new high school will bring. We can’t wait to share it with you.   

I have had the pleasure of welcoming many new students and families to schools throughout my career, both as a principal and Kindergarten teacher. I am familiar with the angst and uncertainty this often brings, not just for your children, but also yourselves as parents and carers. Our aim at Bungendore PS is to make this transition as smooth and enjoyable for both you and your child as we possibly can. If at any time you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with myself, our friendly office staff or our Early Stage 1 Assistant Principal, Mr Brendon Wright.

Dear new and existing Bungendore families,

Starting ‘big’ school is a milestone in every child’s life, filled with many feelings from being a little anxious to that wonderful feeling of excitement for both children and their families. Preparing children socially and emotionally is a pivotal step in the time leading up to this change. 

For both children and families school is a new environment which comes with new surroundings, new expectations, faces, longer days, and different approaches to learning. To some children (and parents/carers) this may be overwhelming and even a little scary. 

At Bungendore Public School, you will be welcomed by all. From our friendly office staff who are always happy to answer any question you may have (there are no silly questions) or point you in the right direction of someone that is more than happy to chat with you, our wonderful Principal Mr Nigel Trethowan who you will meet upon enrolment and our highly experienced, dedicated, caring and supportive Kindergarten teaching team who look forward to working in partnership with you in ensuring your child’s first year of primary school is a special one to remember. 

In preparation for your children transitioning to school, The Kindergarten teaching team has prepared this Starting School Guide and frequently update our school website to support you and your child in being informed and best placed to have the best possible start in their schooling career.

I am more than happy to chat and answer any questions you may have and look forward to meeting you and introducing you to our fabulous Kindergarten teaching team as we work together throughout your child’s first year of school here at Bungendore Public School.

Mr Brendon Wright |Assistant Principal – Early Stage 1
