As Minister for Education I am delighted to announce the $4 Million upgrade to the Tasman District School, Minister for Education and Training Jeremy Rockliff said.

Hodgman Government is delivering the biggest ever commitment to education infrastructure in Tasmania’s history.

Project included:

  • Administration office area and 4 secondary classrooms,
  • Construction of new classrooms,
  • Demolishing the aging infrastructure of the old school foyer,
  • First aid room,
  • New Office building,
  • New Year 11 and 12 spaces,
  • School library.

Project also included the conversion of the old school library space into 2 classrooms currently used by Years 4 to 6, and the constriction of 4 new toilets.

“I congratulate Heffernan Button Voss for designing the building, Fairbrother and Bennett Construction for building the new spaces, and Play Street Urban Design for developing the outdoor space.” Minister Rockliff said.

School community has been involved and supportive of the development from the beginning, giving feedback and input on the redevelopment outcome.

$4 Million rebuild, funded from the 2016/17 Capital Investment Program, is the largest single investment in Tasman District School since the school was established.

A total of $176 Million is being invested across the state over the forward estimates in capital works which includes new schools, school upgrades, new Early Learning Hubs and school farm redevelopments.
