About our school

Camden Public School has a long tradition of quality public education dating back to 1849. It continues to serve the township that bears its name as well as the surrounding semi-rural community.

Our children have a history of strong academic, sporting and cultural involvement. Camden Public School is inclusive of students with special learning needs. We have successful programs for students with mild intellectual disabilities, autism and hearing impairment as well as structures designed to cater for the individual learning needs of all students. 

Our School Goals are: 

  • to provide a consistent, relevant, challenging and diverse 
    curriculum for all students
    to provide a safe and caring learning environment 
  • to effectively and equitably allocate resources for school 
    programs mindful of the specific needs of all participants;
  • to actively support the continued professional development of 
    all staff in an environment conducive to effective teaching, 
    learning and leadership;
  • to ensure productive educational links with parents and the 
    wider community
  • to develop clear, efficient management procedures that 
    complement current needs and our school's future direction.

School song

On the outskirts of the city is a place we love to be

Where buildings merge with farmlands

And children can run free

We can create our new tomorrow to be caring, safe and strong

And there's a place for everyone where differences belong


Here at Camden we reach upwards to achieve our highest goals

In all we say and do

Let's reach out and touch each other's lives

With respect for me and for you.

Here in this spreading country we watch the river flow

Ask the questions, find the answers

And feel our friendships grow

We are open wide to learning

In our work and in our play

And amongst the finest citizens we'll take our place some day

(Repeat chorus)
