Camden Public School (CPS) has 320 students, including an inclusive support unit, consisting of IM, Hearing and Autism classes. Camden continues to serve the township that bears its name as well as the surrounding semi-rural community. The school community has a vision where students are empowered to discover their strengths and strive for excellence: academically, socially and emotionally.
Our students have a history of strong academic, sporting and cultural involvement. The school provides students with a range of extracurricular activities including: band, debating, choir, dance, Auslan Group and Superior Scientists. A strong and proactive approach to student wellbeing exists in a safe, respectful and supportive environment.
At CPS professional learning has a strong focus on student outcomes and building a school-wide consistency of quality teaching practice. There is a learning culture amongst staff where teachers and school learning support officers are committed to their professional learning and that of their colleagues and collaboratively evaluate the effect of their teaching on their students’ achievement.
A key focus at CPS is involving students in the learning process, where they: monitor their own learning, use self-assessment and teacher feedback to reflect on their learning and work towards learning goals. CPS fosters a Growth Mindset, students: embrace challenges, are inspired by others, see effort as a pathway to achievement and are open to feedback.
CPS prides itself on active community participation within all facets of school life. There is a strong partnership between students, parents and staff. A large percentage of parent volunteers and community members regularly participate in school-based activities.
