MY SCHOOL HAS RECEIVED FUNDING. WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?
The Minister for Education has sent a letter to each school receiving funding, outlining what the funding amount includes, details of any training required and key contacts.
What is being built at my school?
Further details about specific projects will be available on this website in the coming week.
Some schools will have received funding to begin planning and designing an upgrade project, others will be funded to begin or complete construction.
We tailor every building project to the needs of the school and school community. This starts with your school creating a five-year asset management plan to guide maintenance and upgrade works.
The foundation of the plan is your school's 'educational vision', looking at the curriculum areas that they want to develop or enhance over the next five years. Schools create this in consultation with staff and students, and we provide training to help them through the process.
WHAT ABOUT NEW SCHOOLS?
Building a new school is a bit different, because there is no existing school staff or community to develop an asset management plan.
We consult the local community, so their needs and aspirations help shape the school's design.
