Welcome to Campbell High School

Campbell High School enjoys an enviable position, situated at the base of Mount Ainslie, next to the Australian War Memorial and only minutes to the CBD. It is a welcoming space which combines traditional architecture with contemporary elements of education.

This year 7 - 10 school was founded in 1965 and has an enrolment of 730 students.

For 2015 enrolments, please contact the Deputy Principal. All applications for enrolment are through a new online format via the Education and Training Directorate's website. For more information on enrolments, please see our enrolment page and our 2016 School Enrolment Management Plan.

For more information, including student and teacher testimonials, please see our 2016 Prospectus Handbook.

2016 Year 10 Leadership

The Year 10 Leadership Biographies includes a short self-introduction and photo for all students in the Year 10 Leadership Group. These students are there to support and be the voice for the entire student body. Please remember these faces and encourage your children to seek them out at any time should they need help or just a friendly face in the school.

Learn, Anywhere: ICT for Students

The ACT Directorate is committed to providing students with reliable access to ICT so that learning can occur whenever and wherever. For further information, please visit the ACT Education and Training Directorate's website.

Literacy at Campbell

At Campbell High School, we focus on improving literacy to improve student communication in all its many forms. The Literacy Handbook has been created to assist and support ALL students to achieve the best possible results when completing classwork and homework. The BSSS handbook "What's plagiarism? How you can avoid it" contains comprehensive information including examples on Harvard bibliographies and in-text citations. This will assist students in the creation of essays, scientific reports and articles.

Text Type Book

Here is the Campbell High School's Text Type Book that you can use when completing assignments and homework. Before you write and submit your 'good copy' make sure you have used correct text type format and edited your work. Use this booklet as a reference so that you can produce work that is at your best. If you have any questions or need assistance in using this Text Type Book please contact Susan Daintith or your classroom teacher.

Homework Wheel

Campbell High's Homework Wheel - how to maximise your child's learning at home.

Sometimes your child may not have homework, in fact research suggests that traditional homework is not a productive learning tool for young people in the 21st century.

We have created this simple framework to assist you in developing your child's whole self through a never ending process (the wheel). The wheel considers 21st learning skills [communication, collaboration, critical thinking and creativity] to optimise their big picture learning. If your child suggests they have no homework, please refer to the Homework Wheel to guide further conversation.

Any feedback you may have on our Homework Wheel is appreciated.
