Lake Illawarra High School is a comprehensive high school offering a wide selection of courses. An experienced and highly-professional staff is committed to the development of each student through quality learning programs in a most positive and friendly environment.
Located on Reddall Pde, which follows the beautiful southern shores of Lake Illawarra, the school is bordered by the suburbs of Mt Warrigal, Warilla and Lake Illawarra South. We are in close proximity to Windang and Warilla beaches, Shellharbour Square and Warilla Grove shopping centres, Shellharbour TAFE College and Shellharbour Hospital.
The school offers a broad curriculum. In the junior years a special literacy class is available to students with learning difficulties. Extension opportunities are provided for talented students in a range of subject areas.
In the senior school traditional academic subjects such as Physics, Chemistry, Economics, Extension Mathematics and English are offered. In addition vocational courses are offered in Hospitality and Catering, Building and Construction, Furnishings and Metals and Engineering.
The school emphasises the intrinsic worth of art and music as valuable cultural influences in the formation of the cultivated mind. Visual Arts and Graphics students have designed and painted murals and features in strategic parts of the school. Our talented artists regularly have their work selected for display in South Coast, Sydney and Canberra galleries. Music students have produced a number of CD's, while our stage band is highly regarded throughout the Illawarra Region and beyond.
Many students are selected to represent Lake Illawarra High School in swimming, athletics and cross country carnivals, at zone, regional and state levels. Students are encouraged to enter state knock out competitions in a variety of sports. Debating, public speaking and research programs operate for gifted and talented students.
