A Labor Government will deliver the biggest investment in public schools in Australian history, so every student gets the fair go they deserve.

Tony Burke is encouraging local public schools to submit their proposals for one-off investments in small scale capital projects to support their schools and improve learning environments for students.

Proposals can include:

-           STEM labs and training equipment

-           Specialist classroom conversions and/or equipment

-           Inclusive learning projects

-           Outdoor learning areas

-           Facilities and/or equipment for the performing arts, sports and co-curricular activities

-           On-site facilities for Outside School Hours Care

Projects will be funded based on demonstrated need, and should not replace state and territory government responsibility for development and maintenance of school facilities.

Please submit your expression of interest by completing the following project proposal no later than 12pm Friday 1st March 2019:

A short description - eg new music equipment
One paragraph regarding the proposed project
Detail the learning outcomes that the project will promote
If the facility/equipment is new, estimate how many people will use it.
Include an estimate to the nearest quarter e.g. Q4 2019
e.g. State government or local council. If yes, provide further information.
If yes, provide further information.
Do you have a business case/plan/costing to support your proposal? *
If you select yes we will email asking for this documentation later.
Provide additional information if relevant
(e.g. A sports carnival)
