Cabramatta High School is a large school within a multi-cultural community.
The school first opened in 1958, and since then, has been providing quality education to the students of Cabramatta and the neighbouring suburbs. Many of the students are from Non-English Speaking Backgrounds. The school stands on eleven hectares of landscaped grounds, with many playing areas and seating areas for quiet study or relaxation. The school has a large lecture theatre, a library, a multi-purpose air-conditioned hall and a fitness laboratory. As computers become an integral part of our society, Cabramatta High has responded to these technological demands by incorporating computers into as many subject areas as possible. We have six computer laboratories spread over the school with IBM Compatible Computers. A well-equipped Learning Centre exists for seniors and tennis courts have been built. Our students achieve well in the academic, creative and physical areas of education. The school has many programs to help students with their studies, make decisions about their careers and link high school with its feeder primary school and local TAFEs.
The staff at the school are caring and sensitive to students' needs, assisting them to reach their goals and develop as responsible members of society. In 1990, the school became a 'Languages High School'.
The school is proud of its tradition of language teaching. The Intensive English Centre which has been established in 1979 continues to provide intensive language instruction and support to newly arrived students with little or no English. A strong Welfare Team gives support to students who are having difficulties. Parents and community members are encouraged to take part in school activities and decisions. A school Council exists. Through the Student Representative Council, students have a forum to express their opinions about school issues and develop leadership skills.
At Cabramatta High School, our students are involved in many activities out of the classroom, our school is represented in debating, Rock Eisteddfod, Art Club, lunchtime social group, Ground Force (gardening team), Gifted and Talented programs, work experience, chess club, after-school study centre, choir, school band and many more excellent programs. The school encourages students to participate in competitions organised by various bodies, e.g. Mathematics competitions, Science Talent Search, Writing competitions, debating and many others.
