Campbell House Begins a New Year

All families returning to Campbell House in 2017 and, all those who are entering for the first time, are warmly welcomed to the start of our School year. Such an exciting time for everyone! Staff are very keen to quickly settle learners in each class and commence with their programs and activities – all designed to engage and promote the natural curiosity and appetite for learning which we observe every School day.

In the knowledge that children are both capable and competent, offerings, tasks and activities are carefully designed to both preserve and extend such precious skills.

With commitment and vigour, Campbell House staff pursue the best possible ways in which to settle young children quickly and ensure that comfort in their environment, confidence and a feeling of security and being valued are quickly established.

As always, the preparations for a warm and inviting entry for all 2017 Campbell House learners were well executed.

Friends Meeting Up

The beginning of a new ELC School year brings with it the joy and privilege of observing and hearing friends catch up, perhaps for the first time since the final day of the 2016 School year.

There is comfort indeed in catching up with old friends and the joy of making new friends is equally as beautiful to witness.

Welcome to New Staff Member

Ms Sandra Lenon joins us in Campbell House this year and will take the 3YO program in the Waratah Room. Assisted by experienced ELC assistant and long term staff member, Mrs Carol Curtis, Sandra is looking forward to commencing in her new role as a member of the St Catherine’s School staff. We also look forward to sharing stories and ideas which she will bring from her other places of work.

Campbell House Information Night – Tuesday 21 February 7.00pm–8.00pm

Our Information Night, held in your child’s classroom, ensures you have the opportunity to meet staff working every day with your child.

Young children love to know that parents have had the chance to sit in their classroom and to hear all the details about the learning, activities and fun which is planned for the year. An emphasis upon the myriad of ways in which parents become partners in children’s learning, together with the ELC staff, is always highly valued.

We warmly encourage at least one parent from each family to attend. It is an important evening where the connection between home and School is well established.
