The NSW Government will allocate a record $20.8 million to 63 public schools across the Cootamundra electorate in 2023 delivered through the Resources Allocation Model (RAM) funding.
This funding is part of a total annual $10.93 billion being delivered to NSW public schools in 2023 that will drive improved student learning outcomes.
Member for Cootamundra Steph Cooke said schools are receiving more funding than ever before under this government.
“This level of funding going to our schools means students have the opportunities and support to reach their potential through a quality education,” Ms Cooke said.
“This government is proud of its investment in public education. Principals will use this funding allocation to effectively plan the strategic use of resources, putting students and their education 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 allocations are part of a total $10.93 billion investment being delivered directly to public schools in 2023, 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.
