Heritage management

​Heritage management within departmental facilities

The Department of Education​ works closely with the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (EHP) to conserve and manage its assets of heritage significance. These can include:

  • buildings, including schools and teacher residences
  • landscapes, including ovals, shade structures, trees and playgrounds
  • artefacts, including memorials and honour boards
  • infrastructure, including equipment and furniture.

We manage these assets in accordance with the design standards for departmental facilities and The Burra Charter.

We collaborate with teachers, parents and care givers, school support staff, students and community groups, to:

  • educate and involve the community through school curriculum activities
  • support school communities to develop conservation management plans
  • assist with nominations to state and local government heritage registers.

Contact the EHP for further information on conserving and managing assets of heritage significance.
