90 South Australian Public Schools To Refurbish Their Infrastructure

More than 90 South Australian Public Schools will construct new infrastructure in place of the prevailing buildings and classrooms with a fund of $690 million. These schools are scattered all across SA. Each of these schools will be allocated with a sum in between $5 million to $10 million. Several high schools such as Seaton, Norwood Morialta, Underdale, Murray Bridge and Port Lincoln are to receive even more.

The South Australian government said that fund was generated by the sale of the Lands Title Office, and that the fund was not inclusive in the existing maintenance budget.

Premier Weatherill said that in order to equip the students with the skills of the 21st century and to facilitate new transportables, schools like Seaton High school will spend $20 million. He further added “It’s an example of investing essentially the reserves that occurred through the excellent result for the Lands Title Office sale, and putting that back into public education.”

Education Minister Susan Close said that the funding rendered to the schools will be expended with the consultation of the government. She further said that although funds get routinely spent over the maintenance, to ameliorate the quality of 91 schools in a single program is remarkable.

The Government is planning to construct three new schools in the CBD, and in Adeliade’s outer northern and southern suburbs.

The Government has said that the construction would take place in between 2018 and 2022.
