About our school

Chifley College Dunheved Campus caters for the academic, cultural, physical and spiritual development of students in the context of family, friends and community.

Teaching programs are aimed at growing young people as responsible and productive learners, citizens and leaders. The success of our progressive literacy and numeracy programs is evidenced by a Director General Achievement Award in 2010 and an Excellence in Education Award for Outstanding Achievement- Stage 4 Enrichment Program in 2011.

Our students engage with learning in an innovative and supportive environment with interactive whiteboard technology in air-conditioned classrooms, state of the art technology rooms, multimedia conferencing facilities, a modern technology based two storey library, expansive grounds and extensive sporting facilities. Our highly accomplished and experienced teachers are committed to ongoing rigorous professional training and development each year. Teachers know our students well and encourage initiative, personal responsibility and self-regulated learning.

We are particularly proud of our partnerships with parents, local businesses, employment agencies and tertiary institutions. We offer unique programs that give students access to employment and TAFE courses. Students receive the advantage of increased vocational skills and hands-on learning experiences in such areas as hairdressing and panel beating. Students attending Dunheved then have the choice of attending the Senior Campus, which is a modern, purpose built campus, situated next to Mt Druitt TAFE, or, Bidwill High School. You are welcome to see the school in operation and learn more about our wonderful programs. You can be assured of a positive and friendly welcome.

Chifley College was established in 2000 to provide enhanced educational opportunities for students of Western Sydney. Our College, comprised of Bidwill Campus (7-12), Dunheved Campus (7-10), Mt Druitt Campus (7-10), Senior Campus (11-12) and Shalvey Campus (7-10) is situated on Darug land.

The College motto, "Learn, Discover, Inspire" is at the foundation of the partnership between students, community and the school. Students have many opportunities to engage with a broad and varied curriculum that targets their needs and is designed to encourage excellence and citizenship.

Across the College, students have participated in a diverse range of extra-curricularactivities including sports, dance, arts and debating. These activities were supported by the commitment of an extraordinary group of teachers.

Effective partnerships with our community are essential if we are to achieve our goals. We deeply value our shared journey with local Aboriginal elders and the Aboriginal Education Consultative Group. We enjoy strong support from the Pacific Islander community and our parent bodies.

We have continued to build significant relationships with our local primary schools. We also acknowledge the input of the wider community into the success of our students. In particular, the University of Western Sydney, TAFE and local employers who provide work experience and work placement to prepare our students for the transition from school to further education or work.
