Welcome to William Campbell College
William Campbell College is a purpose-built special assistance school that offers a holistic education system to support students K-6 whose specific needs are not being met by mainstream education.
The College caters for a range of students from K-6 who may have suffered significant trauma or experienced time in out-of-home care. They may be disengaged from school or struggling in mainstream education due to a range of social, emotional, behavioural or learning difficulties.
Students may be disengaged, dysregulated, have significant learning gaps or lack the confidence needed to take learning risks.
William Campbell College implements a range of evidenced based programs and strategies to successfully improve students’ self-regulation, relationships, wellbeing, growth and academic achievement. Our pedagogical strategies incorporate trauma-informed teaching, positive education and wellbeing practices in a caring, safe and supportive environment.
To support the stability, growth and achievement of children at William Campbell College, outdoor educational opportunities are a key focus. The rural setting provides the perfect opportunity for the incorporation of outdoor programs including permaculture, horticulture and aquaculture. Outdoor Learning Programs provide the opportunity for students to explore, lead, problem solve, experience, communicate and work as a member of a team, as well as have some fun.
William Campbell College is a Christian school. We acknowledge that God created each child individually and we encourage students to embrace their unique gifts and reach their God given potential.
We hope to be open Term 1, 2023! To keep up to date on the build and opening dates for William Campbell College, subscribe below!
