I am delighted and proud to be the principal of Charnwood-Dunlop School. Our professional staff value the strong and diverse community of our school where we work together with our energetic parents and citizens (P&C) and School Board to support all students to grow and learn. Our school vision is:
‘Together as a community of staff, students and families we will create a safe and encouraging learning environment where wonder and curiosity are nurtured and every child is empowered to reach their full potential. We will value diversity and build respectful relationships through effective communication.’
The staff at Charnwood-Dunlop School work collaboratively to provide a professional learning community where we have high expectations for all students and provide opportunities to extend and support individual learning. Our REACH values of Respect, Excellence, Acceptance, Commitment and Honesty underpin everything we do. As part of this we have a ‘Positive Behaviours for Learning’ (PBL) approach to student engagement and wellbeing. PBL is a well-researched philosophy grounded in the idea that changing a student’s environment and engagement in class can change desired behaviours. Our school expectation is that all students are positively engaged in their learning, they are safe and they are respectful.
The Belconnen Primary Introductory English Centre (BPIEC) is an important part of our school. Students attend the BPIEC to learn English for two terms before transitioning to their local primary schools. The inclusion of the BPIEC provides a unique and valuable opportunity for all our students to develop intercultural understandings, create connections and develop an appreciation of diversity in our global society.
Students have many opportunities to learn and succeed at Charnwood-Dunlop School:
