SA’s new Public Education Action Plan


South Australia’s new Public Education Action Plan: Your Child, Their School, Our Future, highlights the importance of parents considering their local public school.

The plan focuses on five key areas:

  • Giving children a head start
  • Educating students for the jobs of tomorrow
  • A focus on literacy and numeracy to put the basics first
  • Help for every student to be their best
  • Supporting our teachers to deliver great results.

The State Government will centrally fund utility bills and provide extra funds for cleaning for all public schools and preschools which will free up a further $66 million over four years for teaching resources, support programs and technology.

A $30 million initiative to ease cost of living pressure for thousands of South Australian families has also been announced. From next year, an extra 29,000 students will be eligible for the school card program which supports low to average income families by relieving them of the requirement to pay school materials and services charges.
