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.
