Campbell Collegiate is a high school located in the Whitmore Park neighbourhood of south Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada. It was opened for the school year of 1963 - 1964 [1] and named for long time educator John Esson "Shorty" Campbell. Currently, it is the largest school in Regina in terms of student population, and hosts approximately 1500 students in Grades 9-12. Its peak enrollment at the turn of the 1970s consisted of upwards of 2200 students, when it also contained a Grade 8 program.

The school has many programs including Fine Arts, Performing Arts, Music, French Immersion, and the International Baccalaureate program (IB).

Currently its feeder schools are Argyle School, Connaught Community School, Dr. A.E. Perry School, Ethel Milliken School, Grant Road School, Jack MacKenzie School, Marion McVeety School, Massey School, W.F. Ready School, W.S. Hawrylak School, Wilfred Hunt School, and Wilfrid Walker School.

Student Leadership Council (SLC)[edit]

The Student Leadership Council (formerly the Student Representative Council) at Campbell Collegiate is responsible for student activities, including "Welcome Week" for Grade 9 students and pep rallies. The SLC Constitution is the rulebook which elaborates on the SLC's duties and responsibilities. It was ratified by the SLC and the student body in spring 2010.

In previous years, the student council was known as the Student Activities Council (SAC).

Athletics[edit]

Campbell Collegiate hosts various athletic tournaments for high schools both from within the province and from out of the province as well as tournaments such as the Campbell Invitational Tournament (CIT) and the Campbell Invitational Volleyball Tournament (CIVT).

Campbell Collegiate won the SHSAA Provincial Championship in football for the 2010-2011 season and also won the 5A Boys provincial basketball championship in 1975.

Campbell Collegiate Cheer team has been Provincial Champions 6 out of the last 7 years and in 2013 was undefeated in all competitions.

Campbell won the RHSAA city and SHSAA provincial boys wrestling championships in 1991.

Music[edit]

Over the years, Campbell Collegiate has established a history of excellence in its music program. The school not only offers core music classes in each grade, including IB Music, but offers choral and band as credit courses. The Grade 9 Concert Band & Concert Choir introduce new students to playing in an ensemble environment. The school features open groups for older students as well. The Jazz Band and Senior Concert Choir groups offer all students, regardless of experience, an opportunity to learn, perform, and tour with a music group. Auditioned groups are available to more senior students. For instrument players, this is the Wind Ensemble group. For singers, this means a chance to sing with the Chamber Choir. However, further opportunity is given through the jazz programs. New musicians can join Senior Green, and new singers are invited to join Jazz Express. For those seeking a further challenge, choristers can audition for the intermediate jazz vocal group Take 10. The most challenging and powerful performances come from the top two groups, usually established members of either Wind Ensemble or Chamber Choir : the jazz band Senior Gold, and the jazz choir The Classics. Both groups have gained a reputation of excellence around the province, and habitually perform out-of-province and in the United States.

Since it first opened, Campbell has been distinguished by splendid teachers in all disciplines and music is not and has not been the greatest of its disciplines but characteristic was one of the early music teachers, Welshman Kenneth Roberts. Mr. Roberts not only ran music shows in the auditorium, took the Campbell choir to sing on CKCK TV, then affiliated with CBC, and led the choir at the then still open and radio-broadcasting Carmichael United Church in the east end but was a night club singer at the Hotel Saskatchewan downtown, and his students at Campbell later ran into him as a nightclub singer in the world-famous Raffles Hotel in Singapore.
