The Victorian Government made a commitment to deliver 100 new schools between 2019 and 2026. This school, completed in October 2020 and ready for students in 2021, is part of that commitment.
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. The facilities include:
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.
Oberon High School's name, culture and history will continue at its new home.
Findmyschool.vic.gov.au has been updated to show school zones for 2021. This includes the zone for Oberon High School.
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.
The uniform for Oberon High School will remain the same when the school moves to the new site.
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 Awards.
The review examined enrolment demand for local government secondary schools and if they have sufficient space to cater for future enrolments across the south of Geelong, including the capacity to meet extra demand expected to come from nearby Armstrong Creek.
To meet this increased demand the review recommended that the government either:
relocate Oberon High School to the Armstrong Creek education precinct by 2021 and build a second secondary school in Armstrong Creek by 2036, or
build two new secondary schools in Armstrong Creek area, by 2026 and 2036.
The Community Reference Group involved in the review strongly supported relocating Oberon High School.
