Get Involved

The Department of Education is undertaking extensive community engagement to ensure all stakeholders have the opportunity to provide input on a range of new education projects across Tasmania.

Current Consultations

Hobart City Partner Schools

Single-sex, co-ed or a combination of both?

In 2019 the Hobart City Partner Schools was formed with Ogilvie High School, New Town School and Elizabeth College to increase subject offerings for our students.

The partnership currently sees 240 Year 9 and 10 students involved in 13 co-ed subjects at Ogilvie and New Town and several Year 11 and 12 students studying a combination of subjects across the three schools.

The Hobart City Partner Schools are currently exploring options for a future model of 7 – 12 public education in Hobart City.  We want you to help us determine a model of high school education in Hobart that is flexible and adaptable to make sure our learners’ needs are met.

If you would like more information on the research and data that has informed this work, you can download a fact sheet and summary of our research findings here.

Please fill out our survey or email us at getinvolved@education.tas.gov.au to tell us what you think.  Alternatively, you can call us on 1800 816 057 and we will mail you a survey.

Community engagement will be open from 28 July to 4 September 2020. Get Involved and share your ideas with us.
