Our History

In 2012, Orbost Secondary College and the wider community celebrated 100 years of secondary education in Orbost.  With earlier levels of schooling available at the Orbost State School or nearby schools of Newmerella and Jarrahmond School, it was not until April 1912, and after much campaigning from parents and other notable community members, that the Orbost Higher Elementary School was opened.

Mr Richard Trembath was appointed the new Head teacher of Orbost Higher Elementary School and was assisted by Miss Olga Hirst.  The senior class consisted of 26 pupils, and the junior class, 16 pupils.   A limited curriculum was available which included lessons in Latin, Arithmetic, Algebra, Geometry, Geography, History, Drawing and advanced English.

From these humble beginnings, the past 100 years has seen many advances in providing quality education for our students.  The school buildings have seen great changes and expansion, the use of technology has been ever advancing and the breadth of the curriculum offered has kept abreast with current expectations from society.

Today Orbost Secondary College has modern, state of the art facilities, while still retaining some of its original, charming architecture. What has not changed is the desire and commitment to offer a quality education to our students.
