Why our junior school?
Located at the Altona North Campus our junior school caters for students in Prep through to Year 6.
What makes Bayside Junior School different to the other primary schools in the area is the access our students have to specialist facilities and specialist teachers in the areas of Science, Technology, Performing Arts and Physical Education.
