The latest round of the Albanese Government’s Schools Upgrade Fund will deliver around $48 million in vital infrastructure projects for Victorian public schools.

Under Round 2 of the Schools Upgrade Fund, 67 public schools across Victoria will each benefit from funding of at least $250,000 to build or upgrade infrastructure.

The successful projects include upgrading food tech and home economics classrooms, installing new playground equipment and resurfacing and upgrading sporting facilities.

Public schools with the greatest need have been prioritised, including schools with high numbers of students from a low-socio economic background, First Nations Students, and students with disability.

Round 2 was open to all public schools and applications closed in February.

Schools submitted their projects to their relevant state and territory education departments which made recommendations to the Australian Government.
