Published Thu 14 Jan 2021

If you’ve had a chance to get a sneak peek at the new Oberon High School campus at Armstrong Creek, you might well be thinking, ‘Wow, I wish I’d gone to a school like that.’

Oberon High's New Campus 'Goes One Better!' And if you’re a prospective student, you’ll have every reason to be excited – because no matter what interests you have, this new campus has a great facility for you.
 
In addition to ‘learning community’ facilities for English, the humanities, maths and languages, there are custom designed areas for music, art, science, engineering and food technology. Plus, there’s a performing arts centre and, of course, a first-class library. And if sport and fitness are for you, you’ll love the spacious gym, outdoor courts and the beautifully maintained oval.
 
It’s the perfect environment for students to live the school motto - SHAPE YOUR FUTURE, GO ONE BETTER.
 
And the school’s dedication to learning and achievement doesn’t end in the classroom. Students are encouraged to meet their individual interests and abilities from an extensive list of extra–curricular activities;
 
• Individual and team sport 
• Annual drama production
• Jazz band, instrumental music and an extensive choir program
• An extensive camp program including; Central Australia, Tasmania, Indonesia, Germany and more
• Academic extension with science & engineering challenges
• Debating and public speaking festivals
• School for Student Leadership and Bogong Alpine Leadership opportunities
• Enviro team – coastal regeneration projects
 
Principal Tim McMahon says the school motto is based on the premise that students will make the most of the opportunities that are offered to them, whether in the classroom or through extra-curricular opportunities.
 
“Our expectation is to achieve student learning growth at an average rate that is faster than occurring across the state and it’s pleasing that we have consistently achieved this in most learning areas. The school prides itself on offering a wide range of extra-curricular activities, linked to what the students are learning in the classroom, to enhance their understanding and application.” said Principal McMahon.
 
A strong emphasis is also placed on a caring and supportive environment. Connect Groups across all year levels allow students to develop strong bonds with significant teachers. Year Level Managers are responsible for student welfare and are supported by the School Chaplain, Student Wellbeing Manager and the administration.
 
Located near the Warralily shopping centre and sports precinct, Oberon High School will literally be part of village life, and within easy walking or cycling distance from homes via Warralily’s extensive pathway network.
 
Oberon High School is a single campus years 7 – 12 co-educational school with a student population of 700 drawn from a wide urban, rural and coastal area.  In 2021 the school will relocate from Belmont to the Armstrong Creek Education Precinct, alongside the state primary Armstrong Creek School. The new campus can accommodate 1,100 students to meet the areas growing population.
