82 >AustrAliAn EducAtion 2012 state-of-the-art facilities School students enjoy state-of-the-art facilities from laptops to music rooms to swimming pools to support their academic learning and co-curricular activities. Australian schools have modern facilities and state-of-the-art equipment. Schools are well-resourced technologically. Generally schools have smart boards in the classrooms, comprehensive libraries, computer labs, science labs, music rooms, gymnasiums, halls or theatres and sporting facilities. Some independent schools specialise in particular fields such as performing and visual arts, science and technology and sports, and have facilities to support those activities. For international students, there are numerous resources for learning English and adjusting to the Australian lifestyle. Schools aim to develop their students into well-rounded adults. This means they encourage a wide range of co-curricular activities, in addition to the academic program. For example, your child may play the violin, get involved with debating at lunchtimes, compete in the cross-country against other schools, learn a new language, join the IT club or play soccer on the weekends. Students become involved in their school and local community and enjoy a wide variety of sporting, cultural, social and artistic activities. ● Top: Schools have modern technological, arts and sporting facilities to help develop their students into well-rounded adults.
