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 to provide a sustainable air conditioning program for NSW schools.

To ensure the NSW Government responds to the needs of students in the hottest parts of the State, we will provide air conditioning in classrooms and libraries at schools that experience a mean maximum January temperature of 30°C and above.

School Infrastructure NSW is pleased to advise that your school’s application for funding as part of the Cooler Classrooms Program has been successful. School Infrastructure NSW will be in contact to organise a date for the due diligence team to visit your school. Congratulations on your successful application. We look forward to working with you to provide better learning environments to improve educational outcomes.

Applications for the second round of funding are now closed.
