Opening of Years 11 & 12 Learning and Community Centre at Dover District School

Sarah Courtney,Minister for Education

The Years 11 & 12 Learning and Community Centre at Dover District School has been officially opened as part of the Tasmanian Liberal Government’s plan to improve education outcomes.

The $1.1 million expansion offers highly flexible and personalised learning, where individual educational needs are met while participants are largely able to remain in their local community

Dover District School extended to include Years 11 and 12 in 2015 and on-site in 2020 offering a mix of Tasmanian Certificate of Education (TCE) courses and Vocational Education Training (VET) programs.

The school offers a range of Years 11 and 12 core subjects through establishing shared enrolments with other specialised providers including the Huon Valley Trade Training Centre, Huonville High School, Hobart College and TAFE Tasmania.

It was great to be a part of today’s celebration and acknowledge the vision, support and expertise from builders Tascon Constructions Pty Ltd and Bence Mulcahy Architects.

With a new cohort of students set to join next year’s program at Dover District School, the aspirations, expectations and needs of the local community will be well served.

Through our 2021 election commitments the Government is investing a further $116.2 million in education infrastructure to ensure we are providing students with the best possible learning environments.

In combination with other infrastructure projects, this additional investment takes the total Capital Investment Program over four years to $271.8 million.
