High demand schools funding boost

20 February 2019

Four Adelaide high schools will receive a capital funding boost to address increasing enrolment pressures and facilitate moving year 7 to high school.

Glenunga International High School will receive $29.2 million to allow it to grow to 2,200 places, Brighton High School will receive $13.8 million to grow to 1,800 places and Unley High School will receive $12.5 million to grow to 1,700 places.

Norwood Morialta High School will also receive $9.9 million of new capital works funding towards co-locating the school at its Parade campus, growing the school to 1,700 places.

In addition to increasing enrolment capacity, the funding will deliver general learning areas, specialist learning areas, laboratories and workshops to further enhance facilities at the schools.

The investment will also allow Unley High School to invest its existing capital works funding into its pre-existing master plan, which includes upgrades to its gym area and a new art, home economic and technical studies precinct.

The announcement comes after the Government announced an $18m upgrade to Adelaide High School, as well as a $56 million capital works package to support enrolment growth across the system, including at ten identified schools across the state.
