at Dover District School.
The opening, attended by various local organisations and politicians including Julie Collins MP, Nic Street MP, Dean Winter MP and Huon Valley Council Mayor Bec Enders, marked a celebration of the building’s construction through community collaboration and hopes to increase student retention rates into Year 11 and 12 in the south of the state.
