Building Education Revolution – Primary Schools for the 21st Century

  • Building the Education Revolution was a $16.2 billion investment from the Australian Government to improve the quality of facilities in Australian schools and support jobs in the construction industry.

    In NSW, this translated to a $3.4 billion funding boost to government schools for projects completed between 2009 and 2011. Every eligible school in NSW could receive Building the Education Revolution funded works.

    This funding was in addition to the record funding provided by the NSW Government towards building and maintaining NSW schools, including the $2 billion Building Better Schools initiative, and the $150 million Principalsí Priority Building Program.

    Primary Schools for the 21st Century was a $2.98 billion investment to build or upgrade large-scale infrastructure such as libraries, halls and classrooms and other buildings in every public primary school in NSW.

    All eligible schools, including special schools and K-12 schools, received a funding boost of between $250,000 and $3 million, depending on the number of students enrolled.

    The program delivered long-term infrastructure solutions so that students, teachers and the wider community have access to high quality resources to support learning and improve the quality and diversity of learning environments.
