Campbells Bay School offers high quality education for Years 1 - 6, alongside personal and caring support for international students and their families.
Campbells Bay School is situated on the beautiful North Shore, overlooking the Hauraki Gulf, renowned for a being a safe and attractive place to live. The community offers a wide variety of experiences for students and families, and the School is close to beaches, New Zealand native bush walks and many local sporting facilities, while still being within 15 minutes of Auckland city centre.
The school caters for students between 5 and 11 years of age, and offers a wide range of academic and sporting opportunities. Students consistently achieve high distinctions and distinctions in the Australian Competitions in maths, spelling, science and computer skills. The school provides a high quality English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) programme, maximising opportunities for our international students to progress with English.
The School has a full time Literacy and Information Technology teacher situation in the refurbished library (now known as the Learning Hub) as well as music and art teachers. There is a strong focus on eLearning, with interactive whiteboards in all Years 2-6 classrooms and four workstations in all rooms. We have laptops and iPads spread across the school from Years 0-6, ultimately to provide transformational learning experiences through GAFE and other educational online tools. The school works in partnership with parents and caregivers to ensure that all students at Campbells Bay feel they are emotionally as well as physically safe – we are very aware that students learn best when they are happy to come to school.
As well as their academic studies students in the senior school have the opportunity to learn sailing, kayaking and water safety, to take part in a choir and orchestra, and to take part in school productions. We pride ourselves in offering all children the chance to blossom and shine.
As one of the Deputy Principals, Rachael Aitken is directly responsible for International students and their families, and she is always available if needed. The school has a high reputation in the care and service that it provides our international families. Parent meetings each term are held with a translator to share information about our school. Translated information, language assistance at parent teacher interviews and school trips for our families are all part of the unique pastoral service that Campbells Bay School offers. Including, weekly English lessons during school time for our parents of international students. A helpful way to make new friends and learn English in the comfort of the school.
Our International fees are $11,300 (plus GST) plus a $300.00 enrolment fee.
