So what is Bigger Things?

Bigger Things is an initiative aimed at improving the future for Huon Valley students. Over 5 years, Huonville High School, Hobart College and the University of Tasmania will work together to provide more opportunities and more information for students, parents and the broader Huon Valley community.

Ultimately, Bigger Things aims to help more students complete Year 12 and then access a pathway to university education with the University of Tasmania.

What will Bigger Things do?

It will support parents, caregivers and teachers to champion education in the Huon Valley.

Specifically, Bigger Things will:

*  Provide a mentor program through local achievers to build aspiration amongst Huon Valley students for exciting careers and to enrol at the University of Tasmania;

*  Hold University of Tasmania Open Days for students, parents and teachers;

*  Improve bus timetables between Huonville and Hobart, and trial WiFi on buses;

*  Provide more information about pathways to a tertiary education through Year 12 and TasTAFE;

*  Improve information about scholarships and bursary support to attend the University of Tasmania; and

*  Develop teachers’ skills so they are better equipped to inspire young people to finish school and study at the University of Tasmania.
