Lockhart River Arts Centre and Lockhart River State Primary School have recommenced the Term 2 school arts program with the first session on Friday 27 April 2018. The arts program occurs weekly on Friday for 2 hours at the Art Centre. Teacher incharge Steve Mills and his support staff team have worked hard to bring in a consistent number of students each week to participate in the arts program. The students are currently learning the basics to arts and painting and why arts is important to culture and community.
Lockhart River Arts Centre is now connected to the National Broadband Network (NBN) satellite service. The installation was completed between 25 and 26 April 2018. The installation of the new service has improved the Art Centre's capacity to communicate, access and engage with representative commercial galleries, new and existing customers, state and federal funding agencies and all operational aspects both domestically and internationally. The service is faster, more reliable and will be fully operational all year round including the annual wet season period from December to April.
