Campbell End of Spring Term Newsletter

Spring Term 2022 has been a short, yet fruitful term for pupils in Campbell, who have all been working hard towards their exams whilst taking part in a plethora of activities throughout the weeks.

Ash Wednesday Service

Earlier this term, on 2 March, the School held our Ash Wednesday Service to mark the beginning of Lent. This gave pupils the opportunity to receive communion and was a lovely chance for the School to get together once again and enjoy Chapel. 

House Games

Campbell pupils pride themselves on their sporting abilities. Taking part in Basketball, Table Tennis and Dance in the School’s weekly House Games, they were proud to compete in House Funals in Netball and Lacrosse against other Houses at the end of term. Huge thanks must be given to our House Captains, Polina and Jasmine (LVI) for their hard work in organising the teams and encouraging girls of all ages to represent Campbell and do their best.

BISMUN 2022, in Bath, was the first overnight conference of the MUN season, and was an incredible success (with many successful Campbell delegates!). Every pupil had the opportunity to debate topical issues ranging from the immediate situation in Ukraine, to vaccine implementation, to even a resolution submitted about Taylor Swift! Highlights from the Security Council, which Pia (LVI) was a part of, included a crisis simulation on oil in the Middle East, as well as debating China’s territorial claims over the South China Sea. 

Pia (LVI) had this to say about the event “The conference provided us the chance to connect with fellow MUN enthusiasts, and for the younger years, it was a great experience for their first conference. Particular congratulations must go to Ellie (LV) who was awarded the Best Young Delegate – an amazing achievement.” You can read more from Pia on our latest news web page.

Management Conference 

Last week, the LVI participated in a two-day Wycombe Management Conference in collaboration with the Royal Grammar School, High Wycombe. The pupils learnt about the basic skills in running a business (in particular, a coffee shop) such as risk-taking and effective communication. A special congratulation goes to Jasmine (LVI), who along with her group, won the competition by gaining the most profit in the simulation out of 24 groups. You can read more from the conference on our latest news web page.

World Book Day

World Book Day is a wonderful opportunity for pupils to reflect upon not only the stories that have played a big part in their lives but also the importance of reading to all of us. It’s also a wonderful chance to have fun dressing up!

House Dinner 

After returning from Short Leave, we had the pleasure to welcome parents, pupils, and staff to the Campbell House Dinner. We enjoyed a scrumptious meal, ending with the Head of House, Pia’s (LVI) speech about her experience in Campbell over the years. We also raised more than £1200 for our School charities – Ripple Africa and Rape Crisis.

Sister Act

The term saw the long-awaited School Musical – Sister Act with many pupils taking part in the performance. Congratulations go out to Judea (LV), Nell (UIV), Isla, Sia and Vanessa (LIV). A special mention goes to Sofia (LVI) who starred as the lead role of Deloris. We also had Ava (UV), Arshia (UV) and Ellie (LV) as part of the stage crew facilitating the performance. Well done to all involved.

Audrey and Judy’s piano diploma

We are all extremely proud of Audrey (UV) and Judy (UIV) who are doing their piano diploma this term. It is an incredible achievement to reach such a high standard and is a testament to how hard-working they are. 

Audrey and Judy’s Piano Diploma’s

Both Audrey and Judy form a crucial part of music in Campbell – Audrey is our House Pianist, helping with our Chapel service last term and the upcoming House Shout, whilst Judy has played out in our last two Chapel services beautifully.

House Shout

Campbell House pupils were incredibly excited for the House singing competition (known as House Shout) on the last day of term. They sang Where is the Love by the Black Eyed Peas, which they felt was a particularly strong choice given the current global political and social climate. As House Conductors Jasmine, Sofia and Dawn (LVI) took the lead and were very pleased that they all sounded excellent. They definitely put smiles on everyone’s faces after a very busy term. 

Special Announcement

Finally a special congratulations to our Head of House, Pia (LVI) who has been appointed Deputy Head Girl! We are sure she will do an amazing job leading the school next year.
