More than 1,300 schools to receive funding for school upgrades and new equipment

Today I am announcing that more than 1,300 schools will benefit from a share of $32 million in grants to upgrade school infrastructure and equipment. 

The funding will be provided to schools for projects including: 

  • New or improved outdoor learning areas
  • New or upgraded air conditioning
  • Better ventilation; and
  • New tablets and laptops.

The funding is part of a $250 million commitment to improve school infrastructure.

All schools across the country were invited to apply for the funding and projects were assessed by the Department of Education and selected based on need. 

More than half the schools receiving funding are in regional or remote areas. 

The Albanese Labor Government is delivering on our promise to invest in our schools and there is more to come.
