Principal’s Welcome

Nau mai, Haere mai, Greetings
I would like to take this opportunity to recommend Campion College as your choice for your child’s education.
We are a Catholic, co-educational college for students from Years 7 to 13. We provide an innovative environment that promotes student engagement and achievement in learning. Our students achieve to high levels academically.
The Catholic Church has a long tradition in the field of education. In Gisborne, this tradition spans over 100 years.  A philosophy of education which focuses on establishing high standards and expectations of achievement for students and staff is the hallmark of authentic Catholic education. At Campion College we are proud to continue this tradition through our focus on the development of the total person.
We provide strong support for all students. Every student is under the guidance of a learning mentor who is a mentor, coach and advocate for the student. This pastoral system is a further strength in our school.
We encourage all students to strengthen their God-given talents through participation in the wide range of sports, arts and service groups available through the College. It is through our experiences and interests that we grow to know ourselves better.
Our curriculum is linked from Year 7 to Year 13 so that it is easy for students to move seamlessly from their early years into the senior school. Our curriculum focuses on the key skills of collaboration, communication, critical thinking and creativity.
We develop the leadership potential of all our students through service to others. We aim for our students to critique society from a Christian, social justice perspective, becoming active citizens of the world and caring for our earth and for each other for the good of all. Within the College we focus on the core Gospel values of commitment, compassion and community. Our highly skilled staff reflect this approach and are committed to working within this caring Christian community.
Our innovative environment means that we base our education programmes on the best evidence of how students learn. Our superb facilitates and digital approach to learning complement this.  
I invite you to join us in a peaceful College that has a warm and cheerful atmosphere, in which students feel secure, are aware of what is expected of them, work hard and are encouraged to develop their God-given talents for the good of all
