Tasmania’s Department of Education has released the new Legana Primary School site master plan for public comment.
As the West Tamar Local Government area is estimated to be one of fastest growing regions in Tasmania, Legana Primary School aims to provide access to education in Tasmanian’s local area.
A library, multi-purpose hall, school gardens and an onsite community oral health clinic will be included in the new school.
Partnering with West Tamar Council, the school will also have a new community sports precinct for its 350 students.
After 300 submissions were received in the first round of community consultation in February 2020, the project will cost around $24 million.
The school will be located at 612 West Tamar Highway.
The master plan was designed by local architects Cumulus Studio for the new primary school outside York Town, Tasmania.
This was in partnership with the Department of Education, the West Tamar Council and other stakeholders.
Extensive community and stakeholder consultation assisted in the development of the new primary school and its surrounds.
Consultations involved workshops with educators, students from nearby schools and the broader Legana community.
Enrolments and the school principal will be released and announced around 12 months before the start of the first school year.
The site master plan is available to view at www.education.tas.gov.au/leganaps.
