The Arts program at Campbell High School places the student at the centre of the learning experience; learning about the Arts, while also learning through their experience of the Arts.
The Arts increasingly influences all areas of our lives. Our students need to be creatively skilled, aware and critical. The emphasis in the Campbell High School Arts program is on:
