Campbell Primary School News

Campbell Primary School’s big day approaches
From the Canning Times - January 22nd, 2002

Campbell Primary School will reverberate to the sound of more than 300 excited young children in just over a week.  The $5.5 million school will accept its first students when it opens on Monday, February 4th, with at last count, 320 students drawn from the Canning Vale area.

Inaugural principal Peter Glendenning, formerly principal at Beeliar Primary, said the new school represented a significant departure from normal Department of Education practice, in that the main teaching block was double-storey to make best use of available space.

”One of the main advantages of this is that the 17 classrooms are close to all facilities,” said Mr Glendenning.

The facilities are the administration area, information centre (library), music room, under-cover area, canteen, dental unit and the hardcourt area.

The 16 teaching staff were appointed last month.

The school -  in Campbell Road – was built to cater for the expanding Canning Vale area, with capacity for more then 500 students.

It will initially feed into Thornlie High until the completion of the new Canning Vale Senior High School in 2004.

Mr Glendenning said the school P&C, set up last June, had been working on uniforms and various other issues.  “The P & C is made up of a fantastic bunch of people and I look forward to working with parents in the future development of the school.”
