BIT FRESH: Air quality in schools to be improved

Keeping the air fresh at NSW schools is a priority for the State Government.

Maintenance teams are finalising repairs and alterations to windows and ventilation systems in classrooms.

It is part of the NSW Government’s $100 million investment in an air quality assurance program for schools.

The program includes installing automatic fresh air ventilation systems in smaller learning spaces to allow schools to utilise the areas fully.

Funding will also be directed towards replacing windows, ceiling and exhaust fans, and servicing of ventilation systems.

Air purifiers have also been sourced and will be provided to schools when individual school circumstances require the department to respond to poor outdoor air quality.

Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said thanks to the individual ventilation audit reports, principals know exactly how to use their spaces in a covid-safe way – and any issues identified by the audit are being fixed straight away.
