Lara Secondary College boasts outstanding facilities to support student learning. Set in natural surroundings with the You Yangs mountain range as our backdrop, we enjoy not only large and open spaces in our playing and sporting fields but also within our classrooms, gymnasium and performing arts / multi purpose centres.
Being recently developed we have maintained high standards in our modern physical environment, creating spaces which are welcoming and engaging for students in both the Middle Years and Senior Years of learning. Our Middle Years students in Years 7 and 8 enjoy flexible learning spaces enabling the highest quality of teaching and learning. In the Senior Years students enjoy the privacy of their own courtyard with senior classrooms surrounding the gardens and seating areas relevant to the maturity of this student group.
Access to high levels of technology and internet provision is a high priority and students from Year 7 through to Year 10 are currently using their one to one devices – iPads, and senior students who bring their own device, with great flexibility and access enabling greater access to the world of education outside of the four walls of the classroom.
Our specialist facilities include:
- Three science rooms
- Two foods rooms
- Three art rooms
- A graphics room
- A wood technology room
- A drama room
- A fabrics room
- A music space including three practice rooms
Our community kitchen within our Middle Years Centre is a welcome facility for our school and our wider community. Our Performing Arts Centre is being further developed to include a theatre.
As a community centered school our facilities are available for use by local community groups.
