An increase to school funding over the next 12 months

A massive upgrade program over the next 12 months will smash through school maintenance backlogs across the Northern Tablelands, with schools to share in more than $7 million in funds as part of the 2017/18 NSW Budget.

Almost 60 public schools will see upgrades, with works ranging from improved air-conditioning and amenities through to fresh paint, carpets and signage. This funding is a huge shot in the arm for schools across the region and will help principals take back control of their maintenance. This $7 million for the Northern Tablelands comes on top of a record spend in NSW schools.
