Major school upgrades announced

Monday, October 30, 2017

In what is the largest ever State Government investment in school infrastructure, more than 90 public schools will be upgraded as part of the Building Better Schools program.

More than $690 million will be invested improving, refurbishing and expanding capacity at 91 public primary and secondary schools across the State.

This brings the total infrastructure investment the State Government has made in education over the past four years to more than $1 billion.

The State Government is also building three new public schools - Adelaide Botanic High School in the city and new Birth to Year 12 schools for northern and southern Adelaide.

The announcement also builds on the State Government’s $250 million STEM Works program, which is delivering 139 integrated science, technology, engineering and maths facilities in public schools across the State.

The Building Better Schools program has been identified through analysis of the Department for Education and Child Development’s (DECD) Asset Master Planning Analysis Tool which has been designed to determine departmental investment priorities. Schools were prioritised based on:

  • Analysis of current and historical enrolment figures
  • Forecast school-aged population growth
  • School capacity and condition
  • Historical maintenance
  • Enrolments greater than 300 students

Each school and their local community will be engaged with throughout development of the scope for each project and during delivery to ensure the program’s desired outcomes are achieved.
