RECORD FUNDING FOR REGION’S SCHOOLS
The NSW Government will allocate a record $27.6 million across 40 public schools in the Tamworth electorate in 2023 as part of a record resource funding boost for public schools across the state.
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson said the Government were providing an additional $1.36 million in resources for local public schools which will help improve student learning outcomes in our local public system.
“Investing in our region’s schools means more opportunities for our kids and more support to ensure our students have every opportunity to succeed,” Mr Anderson said.
“We are investing record funding into our schools because we know how critical public education is for the future of our students, and of our state.
“Putting the needs of our children first has to be a top priority and the increase in budget allocations gives our principals the tools they need allow them to effectively plan the strategic use of resources, putting students and their education first.”
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said school funding is needs based, supporting all students to achieve their best no matter their background.
“The NSW Government will also better support students learning with disability thanks to an update low level adjustment for disability methodology,” Ms Mitchell said.
“The allocations are part of a total $10.93 billion investment being delivered directly to public schools in 2022, supporting our students and improving their learning outcomes.”
The NSW Government is also simplifying school budgets and reducing time by Principals allowing them to focus on improving their schools and delivering for the students learning there.
The NSW Government is working towards creating Australia’s best education system and providing students with world-class education no matter where they live.
