Science labs and radio studio for NNHS

TENDERS have been called for the construction of 10 science and language centres in government schools across the state, including New Norfolk High School. Premier David Bartlett said Tasmania had secured more than $43 million for 30 new science and language centres through the Federal Government’s multi-billion-dollar Building the Education Revolution (BER) program. “This is the greatest school modernisation program in Tasmanian history and we want every Tasmanian child to have access to the best facilities for learning,” Mr Bartlett said.

The New Norfolk High School project includes construction of a new science laboratory, as well as studios for the new community radio station which is soon to begin broadcasting from a temporary facility in the Valley Vision office in High St. Advertisements outlining the tenders were published last Saturday in the state’s three daily newspapers. Tenders close on November 4 and builders are expected to be appointed as soon as possible. “This will enable the builder to work closely with the architects, and satisfy council requirements, including building and other permits, before construction begins,” Mr Bartlett said.
