The Hon Julia Gillard MP
2 February, 2009 

Media release:


The Minister for Education, Julia Gillard, today announced the 15 
successful projects to receive a total of $31.7 million under Round One 
of the 'Local Schools Working Together' pilot program. 

The Local Schools Working Together pilot is an important part of the Rudd 
Government’s Education Revolution. It will provide $62.5 million over two 
funding rounds towards the development of approximately 25 shared 
educational facilities.

Every State and Territory has been successful and projects will benefit 
metropolitan, regional and rural communities across Australia.

The projects selected will provide innovative and new education 
initiatives that include sustainability and environment education, 
science and technology, music and the arts and Indigenous education. 

The aim of the program is to encourage government, Catholic and 
independent schools to work together to develop shared educational 
facilities that will broaden the benefit of government expenditure on 
capital infrastructure. 

This partnership also extends to third parties such as local councils or 
businesses where projects may feature a broader community benefit.

The Government’s Local Schools Working Together pilot is a common sense 
approach to the needs of our schools and their local community..

Round Two of the LSWT pilot opens on 1 April 2009 and closes at midnight 
on 22 May 2009.
