Taking Education to the Next Level – up to $20 Million to Rebuild Cosgrove High School into a new state of the art school providing education through to Year 12.
Revitalising Cosgrove High School is a vital part of our plan to build a job ready generation of Tasmanian students, supporting our target to increase the retention rate of Year 10-12 students to at or above the national average by 2022, and to have 75 per cent of students complete their TCE by 2022.
The following principles will inform our approach to the rebuild of Cosgrove High School:
- Inclusive – we will consult widely and fully to capture all points of view.
- Discussion – we will encourage honest and open conversations about the rebuild
- Influence – the community will see and understand the impact of their involvement in the rebuilding process
- Honesty – we will be clear about the plan to rebuild Cosgrove High School.
To share ideas, insight and feedback on the rebuild of Cosgrove High School we will run a Have Your Say Campaign that will be overseen by a Community Reference Group and include:
- The Department of education website, which will include a facility to provide feedback via a survey and/or email – firstname.lastname@example.org
- Community forums
- Drop-in sessions at Cosgrove High School
- Social Media presence including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram #cosgrovehighrebuild
- Specialist Focus Groups with educators; students – past and present; parents – past and present; and local community, business and industry leaders.
