Tasman District School is a K–12 school situated in Nubeena with approximately 250 students. Our school population is derived from various areas of the Tasman Peninsula including: Highcroft, Port Arthur, White Beach, Nubeena, Saltwater River, Premaydena, Koonya, Taranna, Eaglehawk Neck, Murdunna and Dunalley.
Our mission is: ‘to provide a quality education, in an inclusive, safe and innovative learning environment which challenges students to reach their full potential and to become positive global citizens.’
Our vision is ‘Engaging Positively.’ We are drawing on rich local resources such as The Port Arthur Historic Site to achieve our vision and make Australian Curriculum implementation authentic and enriching.
We are one of eleven lead schools across the state in Literacy and Numeracy. We use School-wide Positive Behaviour Support to optimise pro-social behaviour.
We are a community of learners with a strong commitment to working in partnership with parents and the broader community. Within the school grounds, we have a community library, swimming pool, FM radio station, on-line access centre, skill centre, memorial garden, vegetable garden and school farm.
The school is divided into three houses names after the Peninsula's Capes: Raoul, Pillar and Hauy.
Raoul - Red
Pillar - Blue
Hauy - Yellow
