Cambridge Primary School Works Progressing

Jo Palmer, Minister for Education

The Tasmanian Liberal Government’s $15.1 million redevelopment of Cambridge Primary School is full steam ahead.

Minister for Education, Jo Palmer, toured Stage 1 of construction on Wednesday.

“Vos Construction and Joinery is doing a fantastic job delivering the redevelopment, with Stage 1 progressing well,” Minister Palmer said.

“Once complete, it will deliver refurbishments to existing facilities and construction of a new two-storey building with four general learning areas, break out spaces, sensory rooms and covered outdoor areas.

“The Stage 1 works are expected to be completed in 2025.”

The second stage of works will include a new gymnasium, supporting facilities and upgrades to parking and traffic flow. These works will be undertaken in collaboration with the Clarence City Council.

The new spaces at Cambridge Primary School have been designed by Bence Mulcahy Architects and shaped through extensive consultation with students, staff, and the broader community.

Minister Palmer said the Government was delivering on its election commitment to redevelopment of Cambridge Primary School as part of its record investment in new education infrastructure.

“Our investment in Cambridge Primary School complements other major projects for the greater Hobart region, with the $27.45 million redevelopment of Sorell School, the new $74 million Brighton High School and new Child and Family Learning Centres at Kingborough and Glenorchy all nearing completion,” Minister Palmer said.

“As part of our 2030 Strong Plan for Tasmania’s Future, we will continue to upgrade education facilities across the State.”
