About our school

Chifley College was established in 2000 to provide enhanced educational opportunities for students of Western Sydney. 

Our College, comprised of following 5 campuses all situated on Darug land.

  1. Bidwill Campus (year 7 to 12), 
  2. Dunheved Campus (year 7 to 10), 
  3. Mt Druitt Campus (year 7 to 10), 
  4. Senior Campus (year 11 to 12) and 
  5. Shalvey Campus (year 7 to 10)

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 participate in a diverse range of extra-curricula activities including sports, dance, arts and debating.  These activities are 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.

Professional Learning

Chifley College provides a wide range of opportunities at the College level to participate and facilitate professional learning.  These are in addition to those opportunities which are offered within campuses and those which staff may self-identify and source outside their campus or the College. 

  • Across campus KLA meetings occur twice per Terms 1,2 and 3.  They are organised on a faculty by faculty basis and developed by Head Teachers and staff based on identified professional learning needs
  • Head Teacher Planning Days provide executive staff with the opportunity to come together each semester to explore issues relating to their KLA or area of responsibility.
  • Chifley College Staff Development Day takes place every two years on the gazetted Term 3 Staff Development Day.  It is held on a rotational basis (at the campus of the College Chair) and organised by the College Development Team.
  • Individual Key Learning Areas offer informal opportunities for staff across the College to participate in various subject based professional learning experiences.
