Charnwood-Dunlop school is an ACT government school situated in the suburb of Charnwood. Opened as Charnwood Primary School in 1975 the school changed its name in 2008 to Charnwood-Dunlop School to better reflect the school's catchment area. Students who attend the school come from Charnwood and the surrounding suburbs of Dunlop and Flynn. The school population has been steadily growing over the past few years, with a current enrolment around 360, Preschool to Year 6.
The Belconnen Primary Introductory English Centre (BPIEC) is located on the Charnwood-Dunlop School site. The Centre offers intensive English for non-English speaking primary school students and prepares them for entry into mainstream ACT schools. In 2014 we have approximately 40 students enrolled in the BPIEC.

In term one members of Belconnen Community Service (BCS) visited our school to coordinate the Bungee Art Program.
The program uses art as a medium for expression and is designed to build resilience and promote emotional wellbeing.
The students had a great time working on various art projects including: badges, expressive drawings, paintings, paper mache and masks. Throughout the program we witnessed confidence grow and a deeper understanding develop that art can be a healthy way to express how we are feeling.
We are anticipating having two more groups this term and are eager to get started and have a great time.
During National Youth Week, we were proud that some of our student’s artworks were displayed at the Belconnen Community Centre over the school holidays as part of an exhibition.
BCS runs many community groups for all ages including after school activities, family information sessions and parenting programs.
