The ACT Government announced in the 2018/19 budget that it will invest $18.819 million for the modernisation of Campbell Primary School. This will comprise new learning spaces to accommodate 450 Kindergarten to Year -6 students, landscaping, and ancillary works. The modernisation of Campbell Primary School strengthens the ACT Government’s commitment to improve school facilities and build state-of-the-art, sustainable educational facilities.
The Design – three new learning communities
The school community was asked to contribute ideas to inform the future learning spaces at Campbell Primary School, including: the buildings and landscape, play and social areas, community connection and accessibility.
The new buildings consist of three learning communities. LC1 is for the early childhood students and this is located on the lower level of the double storey building. The upper story will provide learning areas for the middle primary students in LC3 and the single storey stand-alone building (LC2) will be for senior primary students.
The priorities identified by the community were:
- STEAM areas
- Flexible learning spaces
- Quiet spaces
- Independent learning areas
- Dedicated music space
- Connection with indoor and outdoor learning and play areas
These designs have been developed from community feedback on shaping the physical aspects of the school, so that it best meets community expectations and needs.

NOTE: The internal colours and furniture are used to help demonstrate the spaces, and final selections are yet to be made. The landscaping is indicative to provide perspective and may be subject to change.

Parallel to changes in the physical structure of the school, the school is developing a learning and teaching model to support the delivery of 21 century learning. This will be shared with the community throughout the year,
