The Cobden School community is bounded by the Grey River in the south, the Tasman Sea to the west and the "Twelve Apostles" hills in the north and east.
About the School and Community
The school encourages parents to be actively involved in their children's education and to ensure that children receive a complete education in a caring and respectful environment.
In the physical sense the school is very well appointed, with central heating to all permanent classrooms. There is a Community Library and Reading Recovery Training room. In 2011 the administration block & network were upgraded. At the end of 2013, the senior toilet block was upgraded. A shared modern learning enviroment was also created between the two senior classrooms. Our hall has had an upgrade: this included new toilet facilities, entry/wheelchair access and seismic strengthening.
The school runs after school music lessons for students within the Grey area, with interest keyboard, singing, drums and guitar.
The Community Library is open four days a week from 12:30-1:30pm and is stocked with reading material to reflect the needs of the community.
We have a refurbished covered swimming pool. Upgraded heating means that the students now have access to swimming three terms a year, terms 1-2 and term 4, excluding holiday breaks.
