Cooler Classrooms Program

The NSW Government is committed to providing students with healthy and comfortable learning environments.

That’s why we’ve invested a record $500 million over five years to provide a sustainable air conditioning program in thousands of classrooms and library spaces in more than 900 schools across NSW.

To help our students achieve their potential and improve learning outcomes, we are delivering sustainable air conditioning, heating and fresh air ventilation systems in eligible classrooms and library spaces to improve indoor environments and air quality. 

Program update

The first schools to benefit from Cooler Classrooms have been announced. More than 900 schools will be the first to have new air conditioning systems installed in their classrooms and libraries, benefiting tens of thousands of students.
