Air Conditioning

As a part of the 2019-20 State Budget, the Queensland Government committed an additional $100 million over 4 years for the priority air conditioning program.

The Queensland Government is fast-tracking $50 million in 2019-20 to deliver cooler classrooms for students and teachers. 

This brings the Queensland Government’s total investment for air conditioning to $67 million in 2019–20. 

An additional 301 schools across southern Queensland have been approved to have air conditioning installed. Spaces including classrooms, libraries and staff rooms will be air conditioned under this program.

As with the previous Cooler Schools Program, these schools have been selected using heat discomfort data, using a combination of the highest average apparent temperature data and the highest number of school days in Term 1 and Term 4 above 30°C.

The Department of Education is progressively rolling out air conditioning in schools across the state. 

Under the Cooler Schools Program, more than 3,500 classrooms in around 390 state schools in the hottest and most humid parts of the state already have air-conditioning installed.

The schools set to benefit from this boost of funding are outlined below:
