Principal’s Address – 11 November 2022

Dear parents/carers,

Today the loss of lives from all wars and conflicts was remembered by all students and staff at Campbell Primary School in our annual Remembrance Day service. It was very poignant with our Student Councillors reciting poems, observing a minute’s silence and our Pre-primary/Year 1 class again performing their assembly song – Imagine – by John Lennon. I thank Miss Harvey and Mrs Slee for their coordination of this morning’s special service.


I wish to advise that we are starting to see more positive cases of COVID-19 within our school, for both staff and students. As such I urge all parents to continue to reinforce the importance of sanitising, hand washing and social distancing with their children.

Well done to our NUMERO interschool team that represented the school this week. they finished an overall 6th out of 18 schools. This is an amazing effort. Thank you to Mrs Suri for working with these students all year in preparation for the finals.


It is with sadness that we farewell our School Chaplain, Kasorn Campbell, who will be leaving us on Friday 9 December 2022. Mrs Campbell has been such an asset to our school and has made such a difference to so many students and families when supporting their well-being. The Chaplaincy Program is one which provides such valued support for our community and as such I thank Mrs Campbell for her significant contribution to our school community and wish her all the best in the next part of her journey. It would be lovely to possibly see her return in the future. I have posted a note below from Mrs Campbell to the community.

Dear Campbell community It is with great sadness that I’m letting you know that I’ve decided to take a break next year 2023. My husband and I will be spending some time in the UK with our family and exploring the surrounding countries in Europe.  

I have had the great pleasure of working with such a great team of staff and in a wonderful loving community. A community that makes me feel like home. Thank you all so much for giving me the opportunity to be part of the Campbell family and to the stakeholders, I would like to express my gratitude for your support of the chaplaincy program.  

Friday 9 December will be my last day. I will miss coming to work but I’m sure I will see you again soon.

Kind regards, 

Kasorn Campbell

 Bushfire Drill

Next week students will take part in another fire drill. These drills are important to prepare our students in the event of a real bushfire. I encourage all families to also consider reviewing their own fire evacuation procedures for their home.


Kind regards,
