For young Australian families, education is everything. A modern home with five bedrooms and a pool is great, but is it really suitable if there are no good schools nearby? Finding a home near a great school sets your kids up for the long-term, and real estate in Bunbury is perfectly poised to satisfy those needs.
To help you find a home in the right location, we've put together a list of three of the best primary schools in the Bunbury area.
Bunbury Primary School is an independent public school situated amongst the beautiful "Tree Street Area", just minutes outside the Bunbury CBD by car. This is great if you're a parent who will be working in the CBD. The central location means you can drop your kids off and pick them up on the way to and from work. Students at Bunbury Primary have historically achieved results above the Australian average in reading and numeracy, as reported by MySchool.
Supporting the use of smart devices for education, the school welcomes students to make the most of iPads in their specialised Science Technology Engineering Maths (STEM) education programme, which features introductions to coding and robotics.
With similarly high NAPLAN results in literacy, St Joseph's offers high quality education to residents of the southern suburbs of Bunbury. The co-educational school strives to provide a balanced and enriched curriculum, to equip students with lifelong skills. Its specialist areas include a strong physical education department, music lessons, and the teaching of Indonesian as a second language. St Joseph's physical education focus is on enjoyment and fitness, with annual swimming carnivals, and students are welcomed to take part in their award-winning choirs.
St Mary's Catholic Primary School's motto is "Respect, Faith, Courage". As a co-educational Catholic school, St Mary's promises an education founded in strong interpersonal support and community. Educating students from kindergarten age through to Year 7, this primary school boasts NAPLAN results substantially above the Australian average. The school's small size means that teachers are allowed more one on one time with students, nurturing their growth and catering to their specific educational needs.
These are only a few of the many excellent schools in the Bunbury area. If any stand out to you as a place you'd like your child to learn and grow, get in touch with a Ray White agent today to find a home within the school zone of your choice.
