Whilst primarily servicing the training needs of the school, the TAS Trade Training Centre has been set up as a community resource. Located in Canambe St, two blocks east of the main TAS campus, the site is zoned for community use and East Armidale United Football Club and Easts Cricket use the centre’s floodlit oval, Doody Park, as their home ground. The centre provides industry-accredited training in automotive, metals and engineering and agriculture to Certificate III level to school students.
Both the manufacturing arm and the vehicle servicing provide an opportunity for apprentices, trainees and students to take their learning into industrial workshop environments. The TAS Agriculture department also operates a Poll Hereford stud and achieves considerable success both on the Show circuit and through breed sales.
The Armidale School is very excited to announce the launch of our new Day Student ‘All-Rounder’ Scholarships. A limited number of scholarships for 50% tuition will be awarded to students who have demonstrated consistent academic achievement and involvement in sport or the creative arts and who would be enthusiastic about the opportunity of a TAS education. New day students entering TAS in Year 9 or above in 2019 are eligible to apply for these entrance scholarships. The closing date for application is Friday 28 September.
