OBERON High School held a special assembly on Friday, August 9 to celebrate Education Week.

While the snow did prevent a number of students from making it to school, special guests, parents and community members united to celebrate the achievements of the many students who received awards and watched some of the talented students' performances in music, dance and drama.

The state theme for Education Week 2019 was "Every student, every voice".

Oberon High School's principal Mr Luccarda spoke about how this theme links to diversity which is embraced in our school.

He reminded the school community the school vision was to educate the whole person for the whole of life and how this applied to our PBL structure of the 4 Rs: Responsible, Respectful, Right to be Safe, Resilient.

Guest speaker Tom McKinnon, who graduated from Oberon High in 2013, spoke of his educational journey to becoming an electrical engineer.

The school had a visiting delegation from Motosu City, Japan who performed a song in English and in Japanese.

The Japanese students were buddied up with students from year eight to experience some typical classroom activities and lunch.

They were accompanied by the superintendent of education and the chief assistant manager of the Motosu City Board of Education, who told us they enjoyed the experience at our rural school.

We hope that this visit has built relationships that may lead to future activities.
