This is the sixth chapter in our new series of learning at New Town High School. Mr Appleton explains the technologies subjects (Woodwork, Metalwork, Design in Construction, Plastics and leather) that are available in our workshops.
New Town High School is offering both Aquaculture Enterprise level 2 and Aquaculture Systems level 3 for year 11 and 12 students. Students will have a shared enrolment with Elizabeth College where they will study their other TASC subjects.
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.
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.

Every year, as part of New Town High tradition, students and staff attend various commemorative events for Anzac Day – in particular the Lenah Valley RSL’s main service. Sadly, these large gatherings have been cancelled this year, but we shouldn’t let it stop us acknowledging and thanking those who served and continue to serve our country.
Join us a 6 am Anzac Day as Year 10 Student Nick plays the Last Post and leads our 2 minutes silence.
