Library Resource Centre

The Lowanna library holds a wide range of learning resources including an extensive collection of books and magazines. CD-ROM and audio-visual facilities, computerised catalogues and loan systems mean that students have excellent access to the collection and at the same time develop their computer skills. The Library has its own computer facilities for research.

The Library Resource Centre is open throughout the school day, including recess and lunch times so students have ample opportunity to use and borrow material for study and recreation.

Career Resource Centre

The Career Resource Centre provides comprehensive resources and services for our students to assist them with their post school preparation. Some of the services offered include: course and career guidance, pathways planning, job interview preparation and work experience/work placement.

We have our own collection of videos and DVDs and a library of books and publications that students are able to take home. For senior students there is information on University and TAFE courses, scholarships and student services.

The centre is open throughout the day and most recess and lunch times.

Students are encouraged to participate in the many career related excursions and events that are organised throughout the year.

Gymnasium & Auditorium

A 580-seat auditorium supports a strong performing arts program and a double gymnasium with sprung floor enhances the Exemplary Physical Education and Sports program.

These facilities not only benefit Lowanna students but also are made readily available to the wider community. The College Council has ensured that the resources that were provided when the College was established have been continually maintained and renewed through sound budgeting, providing a replacement program through depreciation allowance.

Gym

The College has a fully equipped gym with a range of cardio equipment, machine weights and free weights. Gym programs are incorporated into curriculum and are also offered at lunchtimes and after school for students.

The school currently has 3 computer laboratories and a number of other mini- labs of computers. Student-access to computers is also available in the Library, with the College-wide computer network extending to all classrooms. The College has invested in trolleys of laptops to provide the most flexible delivery of this technology to our classes. State-of-the-art computer facilities are also available to support Media and Design and Systems Technology. All computers have internet connections. A full range of VCE Information Technology units is offered in the Senior School.

Horticultural Area and Mini Farm
