Bayswater Primary School is proud to have strong community partnerships.
By partnering with community organisations, we have the ability to plan and develop programs that assist young people across the community.
This also helps foster greater integration between schools and communities creating better outcomes for children, young people and their families.
Some of our community partnerships include:
Appleby Real Estate
Appleby Real Estate run a pancake breakfast at Bayswater Primary School each month and support the school in other ways. Thanks Appleby!
