Buangor Primary School with a current enrolment of 35 is a rural school situated between Beaufort and Ararat just off the Western Highway. The original redbrick building and attached residence was erected in 1878 and today houses the Science/Art Room. The main building contains the Senior Department, Office, Principal’s Office and Staffroom. A new double portable building is now used as the Junior Department and LOTE/Multipurpose Room. The school grounds are extensive, leading to native bush land and a backdrop of Mount Cole and Mount Buangor. Students are drawn from the farming communities of Warrak, Raglan, Middle Creek, and Ballyrogan. These areas are serviced by one bus at present.
Buangor is an active member of the Ararat small schools cluster and combines for different events such as school camps, athletic sports and group days.
The school fosters excellent values and the development of well-rounded, independent students with positive peer group interactions. The Bounce Back Program is implemented across the school.
The whole school community is highly supportive and committed to the future development of the school. Parents are actively involved with the school through school council, assisting when required, helping out with sport activities such as swimming and interschool sports and working bees.
Recent improvements to the school include new portable classroom, new toilets, new playground equipment, new vegetable garden, new boundary fencing and the completion of four mud brick cubbies built by children and parents. The school received substantial funding through Building the Education Revolution, which involved the whole school being refurbished.
