A GLIMPSE of what Hobart’s newest school could look like in the future has been revealed with the release of the draft master plan for Hobart City High School.

The long-term master plan identifies options for providing modern facilities across the high school’s Ogilvie and New Town campuses.

The Tasmanian Government has committed $21.6 million for improvements across both sites.

Education Minister Roger Jaensch said the draft master plan provided the foundation for determining the infrastructure priorities for the school and its community.

“The Government committed funding for Hobart City High School in our election promises to ensure the new school will have contemporary facilities to support students and staff,” he said.

“As many Tasmanians can attest, the buildings currently on the campuses have served our community well. But now we’re excited to look to the future together.

“The master plan is still at draft stage and consultation is currently underway so that students, staff and the broader community can be part of shaping the school’s future.

“Having a master plan that the community has provided input into also helps us consider the future of both campuses and what might be possible.”

Lead Principal of Hobart City High School, Deb Day, said consultation with staff had already taken place to inform development of the draft master plan.

“Workshops with staff were held in 2021 to talk about the vision for education at our school, and the infrastructure needed to support this,” Ms Day said.

“The master plan reflects much of this feedback, but it’s still a draft and our students, staff and community are passionate and engaged about the future of our school.

“I expect that the current consultation process will provide us with great feedback that will help us deliver a great outcome.

“Consulting with our students, staff and school community is the ideal way bring forward the fantastic ideas I know are out there.”

The Department of Education’s ‘Get Involved’ campaign for Hobart City High School is open until 20 May 2022.
