Hands on Learning

Hands on Learning is an “in school” program that schools use to increase attendance and student achievement by building personal and social skills and supporting the different ways young people learn. Ten students and two artisan teachers spend one day out of the classroom every week.

Hands on Learning is currently delivered at East Devonport Primary School, Huonville Primary School and Huonville High School.
