Cunderdin District High School (4069)

School Overview

Cunderdin District High School (CDHS) is a vibrant country school in the Wheatbelt with a proud history and a strong community spirit. Catering for Kindergarten to Year 10, our school is committed to providing high quality education for all students, supported by excellent facilities tailored to meet the diverse needs of students at every stage of their academic journey.

District High Schools provide unique learning environments that offer a wide range of opportunities for both Primary and Secondary students, fostering their academic, social, and emotional development. As an Independent Public School (IPS), CDHS holds high expectations for both staff and students. Our motto, 'strive to be your best,' encapsulates our ethos of continuous improvement and personal growth.

Our vision is to create an environment where every student is encouraged to pursue excellence, fostering a community of lifelong learners and leaders who thrive academically, socially, and personally. Student achievement and endeavour is at the heart of CDHS. We encourage our students to challenge themselves across areas of learning, to extend themselves to achieve their personal best and excel in areas of interest.

The school prioritises a safe, caring, inclusive and culturally responsive learning environment where student voice plays an active role in the decision-making process. The staff form a cohesive team, collaborating to make a meaningful difference in the lives of our students and community. Through a distributed leadership model, we ensure that all staff members have active involvement in the school's direction, fostering a sense of empowerment and influence.

Our positive approach to behaviour is another important aspect of life at CDHS. We believe that every child has the right to feel safe, respected, and valued and we work hard to create a supportive and inclusive environment that encourages positive relationships and behaviour. Our Positive Behaviour Support approach helps students develop a strong sense of self-awareness and self-regulation, through explicitly teaching focus behaviours that are important skills for success in both academic and personal life. Through a multi-tiered system of support, we cater to individual learning needs, ensuring success for all students, while also prioritising the health and wellbeing of both students and staff.

School community partnerships are integral to the success of the school and are therefore a central focus of the school. We recognise the invaluable role the Parents and Citizens Association, the School Board and various stakeholders play in shaping the educational landscape of our school. CDHS has established strong links with businesses within the local and broader communities that enhance the schools' programs and create opportunities for our students.
