School Modernisation – Building Works (2 February 2018)
Posted on 02 Feb 2018
The building works program is on track and the school will be ready for occupation by students and staff. There has been a considerable amount of activity happening throughout the past week in preparation for the start of the school year. The transportable buildings are substantially complete with minor works being finalised. Removalists started relocating furniture, teaching materials and storage boxes into the new teaching spaces on Wednesday.
Clean fill is being placed on the vacant B Block and Annexe site this week and some construction fencing has already been removed from site. The new games court is in the final stage of design and will soon go to tender with works proceeding throughout Term 1.
We look forward to welcoming students and parents to Campbell Primary School next week for the commencement of the 2018 school year.
School Modernisation – Building Works (24 January 2018)
Posted on 25 Jan 2018
The program of building works is on track with demolition of B Block and the annex now complete. The final stage of rubble removal is currently underway and testing of the soil will be done this week. Once validation of the soil has been achieved, the contractor will import clean fill to reinstate the area to surrounding levels and turf the area. Fencing will then be realigned to return most of the senior play area to the school.
The final transportable building (toilet block) was delivered earlier this week and is now being connected to water and sewer. We also expect the connecting decks including ramps and stairs will be finished this week. Electrical power has been restored to the whole site and has passed all relevant inspections and the information and technology (ICT) cabling to the buildings is in place.
The building contractor is currently arranging for all inspections to be undertaken and we expect a final handover of the site next week, ready for occupation by students and staff from the first day of the 2018 school year.

Posted on 11 Jan 2018
The program of works has continued with the wrapping of B Block and the Annexe being finished before the Christmas break. The internal demolition of these buildings is now substantially complete and Block B is scheduled for full demolition commencing the week of 15 January. This work will be undertaken by a company licensed to deal with asbestos demolition.
The infrastructure for electrical supply is currently being installed across the school and work also continues in preparing the interior of the purpose-built learning spaces for our students and teachers.
The plan for the building works is on track and we expect this to be completed by 25 January, ready for occupation by students and staff from the first day of the 2018 school year.
