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.

There are seven Houses at Dandenong High School, but we believe that Darwinia is more of a home. Everyone in Darwinia is individual, but together we’re an unstoppable team. We want our Darwinians to know that they are all special and that they have the ability to create bonds with each other that will last a lifetime. As House Captains, we know we can’t lead by thinking highly of ourselves and our own opinions – we need to seek out and use the ideas and thoughts of the students in our House so we can create a place where all of us feel safe – like we’re at home.
