Investing in our youngest students

Jeremy Rockliff,Minister for Education and Training

A new Kindergarten at the Moonah Primary School has officially opened as part of the Tasmanian Government’s plan to improve educational outcomes and rebuild a stronger Tasmania.

The $1.4 million project introduces a contemporary and inspiring learning space for the school’s students and features two new rooms.

The design uses elements of the school’s existing buildings of red brick and gable roof, with the landscaping of the playground complementing the school’s new bushfood garden.

The southern wall of the Kindergarten will feature a piece of public art by artist Jackson Wells, who worked closely with architects to bring the vision to life.

The Tasmanian Government is committed to ensuring our students have the school environments needed to learn, grow and thrive, and we recognise the importance of early years education.

The State Budget includes the biggest ever commitment into education infrastructure in Tasmania’s history with $204.1 million targeted at new schools, school upgrades, school farms and Child and Family Learning Centres.

We are proud of our record investment to ensure our students can grow into creative and curious thinkers, as well as future leaders.
