Principal’s Address Term 2 Week 10

Dear Parents/carers,

As we come to the close of Term 2, I would like to acknowledge and thank all students, staff and parents for your efforts in supporting the continuing development of a high care and high performance culture across the school. It is through the collective efforts of all that the last semester has been so highly successful and productive. I am very proud of all students for their commitment to the school’s core virtues, they continue to show kindness, respect and strive to be resilient when required. These virtues will hold them in good stead for their future.

A special thank you to our staff for such dedication to their chosen profession, they work incredibly hard to ensure they provide a rich and engaging curriculum. We are very fortunate to have such a team of professionals within our school, from our executive team, front office staff, gardeners and cleaners, all work in the absolute best interest of our students. This, complemented by our highly supportive parent community, makes the school the special place it is.

I wish all parents and students a very happy and safe break. We look forward to seeing you all again in Term 3.

School Board

I wish to thank the School Board for their ongoing support of our school and its policies. Particular thanks to Dr Rachel Sheffield and Zoe Parry – our community representatives. They have both made significant contributions to the school in the areas of STEM and student well-being.


I am proud to state that our school is committed to embracing cultural diversity across the year not just in NAIDOC week. Our current Business Plan reflects this commitment as do many of the ongoing events we engage in throughout the year. A particular celebration is the aboriginal art mural being completed by one of our parents- Nicky S. Nicky presented the original indigenous artwork to the school at today’s assembly. This was an unexpected gift and it is an honour to hang such a remarkable piece of indigenous art in our administration office.  Our most sincere thanks to Nicky for her extraordinary gift to our school.

Staffing Term 3

We look forward to welcoming Mrs Cunningham back to our school next term. Mrs Cunningham has been on leave from Campbell PS while she took up a position as Deputy Principal for Semester One.

Mrs Coslani will be on leave for a further term as she continues in the role of Principal at a new school.

Mrs Ward will be on Long Service Leave for the first 2 weeks of Term 3, Miss Gibson will continue in the role of Assistant Principal for weeks 1 and 2. We wish Mrs Ward all the best for her leave.

WA Parents and Citizens Day

For the first time ever WA will be recognising the extraordinary efforts of parent volunteers that represent their school’s P&C. We will be celebrating the efforts of our school P&C in week one, with a special morning tea on Thursday 25 July, 2019. I also invite parents to view the video that the student councillors have completed to acknowledge our P&C. We are incredibly lucky to have such a hard working group of parents that continue to support fundraising and community events at our school. Our current P&C representatives include:

Leonie G, Gabrielle H, Karen P, Kylie S, Deborah B, Skye H, Neil H, Cherie B, Jo-Anne B, Nicole B, Sam R, Tanya H, Christien T and Aine D.

We continue to encourage parents to join the P&C, please just come along to one of our meetings.

Cross Country

Congratulations to all of our Campbell students for their outstanding running efforts on Wednesday 3 July, 2019 at the school cross country carnival.  The Pre-primary to -Year 2 students ran over 700m, Year 3 and 4 students ran 1100m and the Year 5 and 6 students ran 1500m.

After the race, students enjoyed a healthy treat, a piece of fruit kindly donated by IGA Canning Vale.

Well done to Mr Regan and Mrs Slee for their coordination of this event.

Term 3 Professional Development Day

Please be reminded that Friday 23 August, 2019 is a Staff Development day and as such students do not attend school on this day.
