School maintenance

School maintenance to ensure the safety, reliability and longevity of our schools’ physical facilities is ongoing work.

At the department, we classify school maintenance into three key areas:

  • Planned maintenance – an annual program developed for each school.

  • Preventative/statutory and routine maintenance – this keeps buildings and equipment safe and operational.

  • Essential, urgent repairs – any unexpected, urgent repair work.

Our Local Trades Scheme provides local trade businesses the opportunity to quote for school maintenance jobs valued up to $50,000.
