This is the time of year where we are speaking with families about enrolments for Year 7 and Kinder for 2022 (and in some instances enrolments in other year levels). As Principal of Campania District School, I take great pride in our school, students, staff, community and environment and thoroughly enjoy the opportunity I have to share this with our prospective enrolments.
Campania is a school of choice for so many families who are wanting a place where their child can flourish, as both a learner and a person, where they are not lost in the crowd but nurtured to grow. It is so pleasing that so many in our school community are sharing with others the great work we are doing here.
As I have met with families, I also acknowledge the challenges that we face as a small District School. Where there is conflict between students, we cannot simply move them to another class in that year level, as we only have one class at Year 7, 8, 9 and 10. Campania, like every other school has issues that need to be addressed, including conflict between students, differences of opinion and bullying. These are complex issues, and with all complex issues there are no simple solutions. Time, effort and perseverance is required to build and establish good working relationships. We look to understand and address issues and where possible use restorative approaches to conflict resolution. At other times this may not be appropriate in the first instance and other consequences need to be put in place. The pathway through this can be winding with repeated efforts required to navigate a way through. Our commitment to this work is real and unwavering and is one of our strengths as a school.
Please remember there are new Check-In arrangements when visiting school.
You will now need to check in using the Check in TAS app when entering school buildings; this includes classrooms, the office or the canteen.
If you don’t have a smartphone, you can ask a staff member to help you check-in.
Let’s continue to do all we can to keep our schools safe.

It is important that we all continue to keep healthy and safe. To ensure we can keep on top of COVID and also cold and flu, make sure you:
- Be alert to any symptoms of cold or flu that you or your child may exhibit
- Get tested for COVID if you or your child have symptoms
- Practise good hygiene, such as covering coughs and sneezes and washing hands
Remember, symptoms include fever, tiredness, cough, headache, sore throat, sniffling and sneezing.
To keep our school safe, we are still:
- continuing with increased cleaning
- making sure there is plenty of soap, sanitiser and tissues available
- applying restrictions to large gatherings of adults and encouraging physical distancing
- requiring visitors to check-in on our sites
We appreciate your continued support with this.
Thank you to all families who came along and supported our Book Fair. Special thanks to our wonderful Joan for all the effort she put in organising the fair.
We raised $348 towards more books for the school.

Level One Cricket
Richmond Cambridge Cricket Club is hoping to run Level One Cricket this season 21/22 if we get the numbers and volunteers for each team. Sides are made up of seven players from 9 years old and up and play on modified cricket pitches and smaller grounds. Each player bowls at least 2 overs and bats for 18 balls. They get to wear pads, gloves and helmets. I believe it will be played on a Monday night starting at 5.00pm. Home games will be at Richmond Oval and away games at various grounds in the Clarence region. Each team will need a coach/team manager and scorer.
I can be contacted on 0408 447177 if you need more information. Or email email@example.com
