There are six fully equipped labs, computer pods located in all learning areas, 32 classrooms with multi-media projection facilities and five interactive whiteboards. Our network capacity is outstanding and we have successfully implemented a program which allows one-to-one computer learning all students.
The Oberon High School library provides an attractive and stimulating environment for both learning and leisure, with a strong focus on children’s literature, information literacy and the use of learning technologies.
The library is open from 8.30 a.m. to 4.00 p.m. each day, with access before school, recess, lunch and after school. Students have the opportunity to complete homework, research, read, borrow and use computer, print and photocopying facilities. The library supports the school’s chess team. The team competes in several interschool tournaments throughout the year including Chess Kids competitions. The school has successfully won the Tri-College Champion Shield (competing against St Joseph’s College and Grovedale College) for five of the last six years.
