School Uniform

Pupils take pride in wearing the Campbell colours, which reflect the tradition and heritage of the College. Our distinctive caps and striped blazers can be spotted in archive photographs dating back over a century.

All items of uniform are available from the Campbell College Shop, located in the Senior School.

School Meals

As a health-promoting school, our pupils are encouraged to make healthy lifestyle choices through visits to the school by health promotion agencies and their work in the following Areas of Learning: Personal Development & Mutual Understanding, The World Around Us and Physical Education.

All food is cooked from fresh by the College chefs, and meals are served to Junior School and Kindergarten pupils in the Dining Hall of the Senior School. The four-week menu cycle, which is developed by our Catering Manager in consultation with our whole school community, meets the required Nutritional Standards. Special provision is made for those with specific dietary needs.

Partnership with Parents

We believe that parents and guardians play a vital role in their children’s education, and a close partnership between home and school is something we greatly value and are keen to nurture.  Parents also help us to strengthen our community at Campbell through their involvement as Governors, Parent Representatives and parent helpers, and their support of family events.

Consultation with parents regarding the quality of our provision and ideas for school improvement is facilitated via surveys and focus group discussions.  Feedback is also communicated via our Parent Campbellians, who represent each class throughout the Junior School and Kindergarten.

Information is communicated to parents via Induction Events, Curriculum Meetings, Parentmail and the College Website, with regular updates on individual pupil progress being shared through Parent Consultations, Progress Cards and Progress Reports.

Parent Campbellian Representatives

Our team of Parent Campbellian Representatives comprises one parent from each of our Kindergarten and Prep 1-7 classes.

They play a key role in helping us to:

  • strengthen the sense of community at Campbell;
  • welcome new families to Junior School and Kindergarten;
  • consult with parents on key school issues and developments;
  • enable parents to support their children’s home learning.
