Darwinia House is a warm and friendly place to learn and build positive relationships. We value all students and staff and provide a caring and nurturing environment. Staff and students are respected and treated as individuals. There is a real sense of security and belonging when you walk through the front doors.

In Darwinia, teachers are committed to working together for the success of all students. We promote problem solving and independent learning. Our aim is to foster respect, trust and a passion for learning. Students are encouraged to take risks in their learning and to achieve to their full potential in all aspects of school life.

As the Darwinian House Captain, I strive to make Darwinia a place of acceptance where students and staff feel welcomed and valued to be a Darwinian. I am truly honoured to be able to represent the house and as a student myself I understand that at times we feel unappreciated and voiceless. I’m here to ensure that every student is treated with the utmost respect and that their voices matter. I want to create a community where everyone can flourish and grow to be the best person they can be. Leaders become great not because of their power or status but their ability to empower others through their actions. To all the Darwinians, I urge you to be the change that you want to see and never stop trying to make the world a better place.

Hi my name is Andreea Iuga and I am the female Darwinian House captain. I am really glad that I have the chance to represent Darwinia house, I honestly love my house so much. The teachers and students are all so friendly and supportive. In Darwinia house during our breaks students are aloud to stay inside and socialize either by talking or playing games. During these breaks teachers and students can interact with develops a better learning environment and friendships. In Darwinia house all the teachers are friendly and are always willing to help and be of any assistance. This year as the current House Captain for my house I aim to make sure that every student feels safe and welcomed when entering my house. I want the student teacher relationships to be positive so the students wont feel afraid or embarrassed if they need help or have a problem. I also aim to inspire all our students to do all they can and be the best that they can be.
