Facilities at Oakbank

HCCS Secondary is blessed with the range and quality of facilities we have available to support student learning. We rent learning spaces from Oakbank Area School, according to a legal agreement between HCCS and the State Government. We access:

  • Exclusive classroom spaces for Years 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12
  • Woodwork and Metalwork facilities
  • Home Economics facilities including cooking and textiles
  • Specialised Science laboratories for Year 8, 9 and 10 General Science and Year 11/12 Physics, Year 11/12 Chemistry and Year 11/12 Biology
  • Visual Art facilities
  • Performing Art facilities including a separate Drama space
  • A general learning area which is used for Chapel, Assembly and House meetings
  • The Gymnasium for P.E. lessons and training for sporting events
  • the best Oval in the Adelaide Hills
  • the 30+ acre farm for Agriculture and particularly the animal sheds in preparation for the Royal Adelaide Agriculture Show and our chicken programme
  • Garden beds
  • Storage areas
  • Instrumental teaching spaces
  • the Library / Resource Centre at Oakbank as needed and students can borrow books from their collection

The facilities at Oakbank are impressive and the fact that HCCS Secondary does not need to build these facilities one year at a time is a huge bonus for our current student and teaching cohort.
