Bendigo is a city that is located in Central Victoria and is approximately 150 kms northwest of Melbourne. It is one of the fastest growing regional centres in Victoria.

The Bendigo EAL cluster includes both primary and secondary schools within Bendigo and also surrounding areas. There are approximately 15 schools in total with a varying number of EAL children enrolled at them.

The opportunity for other schools to join the cluster does mean that the numbers could increase. THE SFO and SFOE of each of the school differs and so there is diversity within the cluster.
