Canberra High School

The Canberra High School is one of the leading schools of Canberra for the years 7 – 10. It is located in Macquarie, about one kilometer south of Lake Ginninderra and thus near the University of Canberra.

The school has a distinct multicultural character. 40 different nationalities are represented among its 800 students in years 7-10.

The Canberra High School offers French and Chinese (Mandarin) and an incredibly diversified course program in the fields of visual and performing arts. This includes music, orchestras and bands, theatre, dance, and image design.

Special options are available eg. film and TV, where the positions of producer, director, camera, sound and editing are filled in student productions. In Camera Club, digital and analogue photography techniques are taught.

The Technology department has a focus on food science, but also has courses on the use of graphics software, textile information, design, woodworking and metalworking, electronics and robotics.

The usual sport disciplines are all represented. In year 10th canyoning, climbing, caving, snorkelling and canoeing are also offered. For the very best athletes there is an Athlete Development Program (ADP).
