Welcome to:

Ballarat’s Little Bendigo Primary School


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.

We are now taking Enrolments for Prep in 2020.  We encourage you to contact us to arrange a tour of our wonderful school! Our next Prep Parent Information session is on Tuesday 7th May, 6.30 – 7.30pm.

At Little Bendigo P.S. we create passionate, intrinsic, lifelong learners who are empowered to make positive and productive decisions. Our philosophy is to develop children to their fullest potential by providing broad opportunities to share knowledge, skills, interests and experiences in a happy, supportive environment.

We are also fortunate to have Club 1878 provide outside-of-school-hours care at our facilities, for additional convenience and peace of mind.

We pride ourselves on our culture of achievement and success where the school’s values of optimism, compassion and personal integrity underpin everything we do.
