Glen Park Primary is a country school only 8.5 km from the Ballarat CBD. We are close to Ballarat but very much part of a quiet, peaceful rural environment. Glen Park has been providing quality state school education to local children since 1870.
Glen Park’s values were determined when we developed our last Strategic Plan and School Council believes that they embody the ethos of our school today and in the future.
It is always great to show new families around the school and showcase the fantastic learning that happens at Caledonian Primary School. If you know of any families considering an enrolment for 2020/2021, please encourage them to make a time to come down for a tour of the school, to meet the teachers and see the students in their classrooms.
Little Bendigo Primary School is nestled in the natural bushland of the township of Nerrina, just 5 km from the centre of Ballarat. This peaceful location is ideal for education and students love learning and playing in our unique school grounds.
