Australian and WA Governments agree to fully and fairly fund all Western Australian public schools

Western Australia will be the first State in Australia where all public schools are fully and fairly funded.

On 31 January 2024, the Australian and Western Australian Governments signed a Statement of Intent to increase funding for all public schools in Western Australia from 95 per cent of the School Resourcing Standard (SRS) to 100 per cent by 2026.

This is a landmark day in the history of public education in Western Australia.
