Regional Schools Plan


Regional Schools Plan


Project status: Completed

Royalties for Regions has allocated $100.5 million over four years to provide better educational opportunities for rural and remote students, by constructing new and refurbished facilities at 13 schools in regional Western Australia as part of the Regional Schools Plan 2010-2014.

The Department of Education provides high quality educational opportunities to all students in the state no matter where they live or what their circumstances. Given the geography and population distribution of Western Australia, the capacity to deliver high‑quality education services to some regional areas is challenging.
