Field Study Centres open for business again

Tasmanian students will once again be encouraged to explore, experiment and learn with Field Study Centres re-opening across the state.

Field Study Centres provide opportunities for students to engage in the environment through hands on experiences in specialist learning facilities.

There are 5 individual FSC’s throughout the State which provide unique offerings. They are located at the following sites:

  • Hagley Farm School Visitor Centre;
  • Molesworth Environment Centre;
  • Mount Cameron Field Study Centre;
  • Sustainability Learning Centre; and
  • Woodbridge Marine Discovery Centre.

The 2020-21 Physical Wellbeing and the Environment Action Plan released in May 2020 recognises the important elements that contribute to physical wellbeing.

These centres are a key element of the Plan, as they bring together experiential learning, meaningful engagement and purpose built facilities with expert support for all learners.
