About the project

We built a new high school in Armstrong Creek. It opened in 2021 and helps the growing local population get great education close to home.

We built new school facilities on a new site for Oberon High. These are modern buildings that will cater for more students in the southern Geelong area. This school, designed by Architectus and K2LD as part of the Growth Areas Schools Project, was a winner of the 'Minister's Award for Excellence' in the 2019 Victorian School Design AwardsExternal Link .

The facilities include:

  • an administration and library building
  • 3 learning community buildings with adaptable spaces for a variety of learning activities
  • a science arts and technology building
  • a performing arts and physical education building with a competition grade double court
  • four outdoor multipurpose courts and a sports oval.

It is located next to the Armstrong Creek School, a combined primary and specialist school, ensuring quality education for Prep through to Year 12 all in the one precinct. Families that require travel assistance can do so through either the free School Bus Program, or access free public transport as part of the Conveyance Allowance by applying directly through the school.

Oberon High School's name, culture and history will continue at its new home. The uniform for Oberon High School will remain the same on the new site.

As part of this project, we also upgraded the gym at the former Oberon High School site for use by Wangala Primary School.
