Penguin District School - redevelopment

What are we doing?

The Tasmanian Government will undertake a $20 million redevelopment of Penguin District School, providing new state-of-the-art learning facilities for students birth to Year 12. The redevleopment will bring together the primary and secondary school on the existing secondary site, delivering a combination of new building and upgraded existing facilities.  Redevelopment of the school is one of the largest public works ever undertaken in Penguin.

Why are we doing it?

The redevelopment will revitalise the school, strengthening and growing existing community partnerships and providing greater learning opportunities for the benefit of future generations of learners and the community.

When are we doing it?

Construction is expected to commence 2020.
