New $20 million school for Legana

A re-elected Hodgman majority Liberal Government will build a new state-of-the-art $20 million primary school at Legana. ``Legana has been identified in the top 10 areas in Tasmania with the largest and fastest population growth and a majority Liberal Government recognises the need for a new Kindergarten to Grade 6 primary school,’’ Liberal MHA for Bass Michael Ferguson said. ``The population of Legana is expected to grow significantly over the next decade with the current age profile indicating many young families will require access to new education facilities.’’ Bass Liberal MHA Peter Gutwein said that the need for a school has been identified as a top priority by community groups and the West Tamar Council and has the full support of the Hodgman Liberal Team. ``The new school will cater for more than 350 students and the build would start within the next term of a Hodgman Liberal Government,’’ Mr Gutwein said. ``At the moment students from Legana have to travel north to Exeter or south to Riverside which contributes to congestion on the West Tamar Highway,’’ Liberal MHA for Bass Sarah Courtney said. ``A new K-6 school at Legana would also alleviate congestion at these schools as they near capacity and accommodate the projected increase in student numbers from Legana,’’ Ms Courtney said. In the first term of the Hodgman Liberal Government we committed a record invest of $110 million to upgrade government school – by contrast Labor and the Greens abandoned education and tried to close 20 schools.
