Campbell High School

An ACT Public School


Parents

When you enrol your child at Campbell High School you become part of a strong alliance in the education of your child. We will all work together on their academic, social, emotional and pastoral care needs. Over time you will get to know us - our communication will be open and honest.

Staff are always encouraged to contact you if they have concerns. You have a right to know.  It also helps the student when home and school work in concert. We will tell you about the great things and we will also share any concerns we may have.

It's also important that you let us know of any concerns or issues that are worrying you, as soon as possible, so that we can address them. Please do this by contacting your child's contact teacher, classroom teacher, year coordinator or head of faculty, in the first instance. The quicker we can address your concerns the better!

Parenting adolescents can be challenging! We have included some links below to websites, articles and support groups which may help you to continue to parent in a positive and proactive way… when dealing with new challenges presented by your growing young person!
