Our Opportunities


The LOTE program at Bambara Primary School gives students the opportunity to communicate and interact effectively with people from other cultural backgrounds. At Bambara Primary School our specialist Indonesian teacher teaches Bahasa Indonesian to students from Year 1 to Year 6. They learn about the Indonesian culture and basic phrases and scripts for communication. The lessons are highly interactive and integrate with all aspects of the primary curriculum.

Kindy and Pre Primary students access Bahasa Indonesian through the Department of Education’s ELLA program, an internet based program that teaches the language in an informal manner through games.

Learning a language in primary school forms a good foundation for students who intend pursuing the study of foreign languages in high school. Duncraig Senior High School, our feeder high school, offers Indonesian as one of its main languages.

Love of Learning.

Learning how to learn.

Building positive relations with our community.

Our School

Bambara Primary School recognises and respects the traditional custodians of our school land.

'Bambara', an Aboriginal word meaning 'forest country', represents our commitment to a unification of community spirit, culture and respect for all.

Our values of community, excellence and harmony are represented by our school logo - a tree by the water.
