Campbellfield Heights Primary School is located in the City of Hume, approximately 15 kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD. With approximately 200 students, and 10 grades, staff members are able to develop close relationships with all students and their families. Situated on a large allotment, there is plenty of space for the students to play including a large oval, turfed sport courts, new playground equipment, a Community Hub (including a kitchen) and lots of natural outdoor spaces for learning.
Our school motto is “Success for All” and our school values are: Considerate, Honesty, Positivity and Success. We seek to develop students who are literate, numerate, curious and creative, and to empower them to participate in, and contribute to their community. We are committed to providing explicit teaching with high expectations to cater for individual learning needs of our students. We provide learning in a safe, caring and engaging environment. Our diverse community enriches all aspects of our school life. We have a strong social focus as evident through participation in Harmony Day, special themed weeks, character dress-up days, family sports and information evenings as well as lunchtime clubs.
With an emphasis placed on Positive Education, students at Campbellfield Heights PS have focussed on specific skills to strengthen their relationships, build positive emotions, enhance personal resilience, promote mindfulness and encourage a healthy lifestyle.
