Student welfare

In terms of student welfare, Dulwich High School focuses on three key concepts:

  • Respect - for yourself, others, our environment, property, community and teacher's authority/direction
  • Responsibility - attend school regularly, try your best in everything you do, value learning, keep yourself and others safe and wear your school uniform
  • Relationships - collaborate in learning, interact with others appropriately, cooperate, encourage and support others.
