The Victorian School Building Authority has opened a new grants program to fund new shade sails over outdoor learning spaces.
All schools are encouraged to apply.
For government schools, the Fund is administered by the VSBA, and funding will be provided directly to schools once approved. All projects will be school led.
For non-government schools, the Government is working with non-government sector bodies to determine the process for administering this funding. Further information will be provided.
Registrations are now open for government schools.
Registration for government schools is a quick and simple process.
Government schools are asked to provide basic school details, information about any existing shade sails, a brief description of the proposed project and a marked-up SAMS plan that shows where the shade sail will be installed and approximate size.
Registrations are assessed as they are received, and schools are strongly encouraged to apply as soon as possible.
Once your registration is approved, you will need to get a quote within four weeks.
Registrations for government schools close at midnight on 22 October 2021.
Please read the program guidelines, and FAQs before registering online:
