Record funding for local schools in 2023

The NSW Government will allocate a record over $9.3 million to 18 public schools across the Oatley electorate in 2023.

Public schools in our local area are being funded at record levels as part of a total annual $10.93 billion being delivered to NSW public schools in 2022 that will drive improved student learning outcomes.

Member for Oatley, Mark Coure was thrilled to welcome this record funding to the local school network, which will ensure that our kids have access to the world-class educational facilities they deserve.

“We have some of the best schools in the State right here in our local area and this level of funding for our local schools will ensure that our students have the opportunities and support to succeed.” Mr Coure said.

“The NSW Government is proud of its investment into public education and I am committed to securing the funding that our local schools deserve to put their students and staff’s needs 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 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.
