Robina State High School is located in the vibrant business district of Robina, a suburb of the Gold Coast. The Robina Town Centre, one of the Gold Coast’s largest shopping centres with more than 400 shops, cafes and cinema, is less than 15 minutes walk away.
The school cultivates an intercultural education in a warm, familiar environment. The school’s international programs promote cultural understanding and personal development for both international guest students and the local school community.
Robina State High School offers a diverse curriculum with over 40 subjects and secondary courses. These are not only in the classical academic field, but also include such special courses as Oceanography, Beach Awareness and Fitness Programs. An innovative timetable is used so that Friday is a flexible day without set lessons for senior students.
In addition, international students have the opportunity to attend a variety of courses and other activities to develop their cultural understanding of life in Australia. These include trips to local theme parks and nature reserves, surfing and paddling lessons, ballet and Australian cooking classes, museums and a variety of sporting activities. There are over 50 sports teams to join. Robina High has consistently won local championships for rugby league, softball, netball, basketball, tennis, soccer, volleyball and touch football over the years.
That’s why Robina State High School has a variety of sports excellence programs. They are called “Academy” here, and there is one each for baseball, soccer, netball, triathlon and golf. The school is also a paradise for golf enthusiasts as there are three golf courses around the school. One of them, separated only by a creek, borders directly on the school grounds.
