During the first term of Year Five, all children are assessed for inclusion in the Instrumental Music Program (IMP). Twenty two children are selected to receive an instrument and tuition supplied by an itinerant music teacher. Campbell is a brass and percussion school and provides a teacher to assist with this program. Children are expected to remain in the program for two years. Band fees cover tuition, music scores, insurance, buses for combined practices and repairs. This is a most economical and effective program and students selected are most fortunate. There is a Year 5 Band and a Year 6 Band. For more information see our Specialist Programs Page.
Students are able to deposit money into their own accounts through the Commonwealth Bank. Parent volunteers coordinate this valuable program. Our school banking day is Wednesday. Information about school banking is available from the Front Office. Please visit the Commonwealth Bank if you wish to set up an account.
Bicycles and Scooters
The Police advise that children under Year 3 or 4 should not ride a bike or scooter without an adult riding/walking alongside. Children do not develop the ability to gauge distances accurately until about the age of 8 or 9 years old and therefore they pose a risk to themselves by riding alone. All children riding to school should wear a correctly fitted helmet. Bikes and scooters should be stored, with a lock, in the bike racks. Children should walk their bike or scooter once on school grounds. This means all grassed and paved/asphalt areas around the school. To support these safety guidelines we ask that parents, other visitors and members of the public to the school also walk their bikes through school grounds.
Book Packs and School Supplies
Book packs are made available through OfficeMax. Orders may be placed online during term four. We strongly encourage parents to purchase these packs rather than organising the purchase of items themselves, as many are specialist items and are not available from retail stores. Book packs are distributed in the first week of school and supplies (e.g. tissues) are stored at school for distribution to the students as needed.
