I have recently met with those students looking to enrol at Campania for Year 7 in 2022. We have a wonderful group who are excited to be joining us and becoming a part of our extended school family.
Kinder enrolments are still open. Our kinder students have a wonderful learning experience. Not only do they have an outstanding team in our Kinder room led by Mrs Collins and supported by Jacqui, Britt and Denya, but they also have specialist classes in Art, Music and Physical Education.
Our primary students (from Prep to Grade 6 have specialist classes in Art, Drama, Music, LOTE (Japanese), Physical Education and Digital Technologies. They really benefit from the specialist teachers that we have in a district school.
Our secondary students have core classes in Maths/Science (STEM), English, Literacy, HASS, Health and Physical Education and Wellbeing. They also have specialist electives in areas including: Art, Music, Drama, Design (MDT), Outdoor Ed, Health and Recreation, Kitchen Garden, Digital Technologies, Project Based Learning, LOTE, Foods, and Dance. Our core subjects and many of our elective subjects are strong pathways into the subjects we offer here in Years 11 and 12.
Our Year 10 students moving into year 11 and our Year 11 students, moving into Year 12 need to have their subject choices completed. This allows Campania, as well as other schools and colleges to determine the subjects they will be offering in 2022. Students who are intending enrol at Rosny and Claremont have completed this already. Please contact Ms Johnson if you have any questions about this.
For new families considering an enrolment at Campania we encourage you to call the school and make a time to meet with me and have a tour. This can be arranged at a time that is convenient for you and your child/ren.
NAPLAN reports have recently been sent out to families of students in Grade 3, 5, 7 and 9. NAPLAN testing was held earlier in Term 2 across a two-week period. Students completed assessment tasks in Literacy and Numeracy. As a school we use our data to examine how we are tracking over time and we receive data that compares us to other similar schools, schools across Tasmania and schools across Australia. In 2021 we have seen pleasing growth in some areas of Literacy (Reading, Writing, Spelling, Grammar and Punctuation) and Numeracy. While in other groups our data has plateaued. As a school we look to use our NAPLAN data, our Progressive Achievement Testing (PAT) data, our A-E data to shape our priorities for 2022 and beyond.
If you have any questions about your child’s NAPLAN report or other questions/issues you would like to discuss, please don’t hesitate to call the school.
On Wednesday the 15th, the students dressed in either footy colours or purple (or both!) and participated in a range of fun activities to raise funds and support kids with cancer. Some students showed their skills with markings up, the longest kick, footy tag and handball targeting, while others got creative, cooking delicious purple pancakes, making purple friendship bracelets, decorating cookies with purple icing and making a fashion statement with purple nails! Thank you to Mr. S and Miss Cep for organising.
They were lucky enough to get up close with kangaroos, koalas, Tasmanian devils, some reptiles, even an injured Wedgetail Eagle. Everyone had a great day.
