Duncraig Senior High School (4129)

School Overview

Duncraig Senior High School is situated in the north-western suburbs on the coastal strip 18km from Perth. We cater for students from Year 7 to Year 12 and are a school of high standards where the care and progress of every child is the first priority. We continue to improve our resources and facilities through the support of our Board, our parent body and the Education Department. Our teachers are carefully selected for their commitment to the delivery of quality education and for their willingness to adhere to the School values and enhance the traditions. Duncraig Senior High School is part of a thriving community where students have a voice and regularly return to continue their engagement.

Our highly skilled and experienced teaching staff provides a supportive educational experience for every child through a wide variety of subjects and courses. These include English, Mathematics, Science, Humanities and Social Sciences, Home Economics, Visual Art, Music, Performing Arts, Information Technology, Design and Technology and Physical Education. We also offer courses in French, Indonesian and Mandarin languages. In addition, we have an extensive range of Vocational Education and Training courses in the senior school leading to a Certificate II, Certificate III and Certificate IV qualifications.

Duncraig is a Department of Education Gifted and Talented Secondary Selective Entrance school, attracting outstanding academic students from outside the local intake area.

Our range of school-based programs include:

* Triathlon Academy.
* School Based Academic Program (SBAE) running parallel to the Gifted and Talented program.
* Music programs in symphonic wind ensemble, symphonic wind orchestra, Guitarrista and Jazzistico.

A strong emphasis is placed on the use of technology throughout the school. Duncraig operates a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) program and students will participate in IT rich experiences in all areas of the curriculum, lead by teachers who undertake ongoing training to create engaging interactive learning programs.

Staff, students and parents participate in democratic processes providing a broad point of view on many decision-making issues. Our active student services team promotes and monitors student welfare. This team includes student service managers in Years 7 & 8, 9 & 10 and 11 & 12, year coordinators, school nurse, school psychologist, school chaplain and administration staff.

We have recently undergone an extensive building program to cater for increased student numbers, upgraded many existing facilities and also made improvements to the grounds. This has enhanced our learning environment, providing a functional, modern, warm and welcoming space for students and staff alike.

At Duncraig Senior High School, every child is able to develop their individual strengths, talents and passions and gain the learning skills required for a positive future in further education, training or employment.
