2017 Support for Students - Parent and Carers Guide

This guide has been developed in response to consultations with our School Board, discussions with our P&C and many conversations with students, staff, parents and carers.  We have gathered together the types of questions we have been asked and tried to answer them for you.  We have also included information on how we support our students in their learning and their behaviours here at Campbell High.

The aim of this parents and carers guide is to provide you with the information you need to support your child and to work effectively in partnership with the staff at our school.  We are hoping that this will help our new families as well as they enter our Campbell High community.

2017 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.


Campbell High introduced a BYOD Program in 2016 to connect students to our digital learning community. Campbell High, along with the ACT Education Directorate, is committed to providing students with reliable access to ICT so that learning can occur anywhere and at anytime.

For further information about Learn, Anywhere : ICT for Students, please visit the ACT Education 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.
