In this year’s budget the NSW Government committed the largest investment of its kind in NSW history towards air conditioning in public schools.
This investment will provide air conditioning in classrooms and libraries at schools that experience a mean maximum January temperature of 30°C and above.
The Government has also committed funding for schools that have a mean maximum January temperature below 30 degrees (such as Kellyville High School and all schools in the Castle Hill Electorate) which is allowing more schools to benefit from air conditioning than ever before.
All schools in NSW that sit below 30°C will be able to apply for funding to receive air conditioning in their classrooms and libraries through the Cooler Classrooms program.
School Principals can apply for funding via the ‘AMS on the web’ link on the staff portal and I encourage you to work with your Principals should they wish to submit an application.
Applications for funding opened on 1 August, and will remain open through Term 3. The first schools to benefit from the fund will be announced in early November.
