As part of the biggest upgrades in school infrastructure in 20 years, Smithton High School has new and redeveloped learning spaces thanks to a $7 Million major refurbishment, Minister for Education and Training Jeremy Rockliff said.

Existing areas have been updated to provide modern learning environments that will benefit students and staff for years to come, with students integral to the design of the new state of the art Library, Music, Science and Hospitality facilities.

As one of the first schools to extend to Year 12, Smithton High School’s enrolment figures increased almost 60 % in 2015, and these upgrades ensure the school has capacity for the continuing growth in enrolment.

“Congratulations to Philp Lighton Architects and Stubbs Construction for working with the school to create spaces that engage and support our students.” Minister Rockliff said.

Across the forward estimates the Hodgman Government continues to invest in school infrastructure to Build Your Future by upgrading students’ learning environments and growing the Tasmanian economy, with a total school capital program of more than $110 Million across 4 years.
