School maintenance
Return to top of page

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.
