NSW public schools income received from hire of school facilities (2014-2022).

The NSW Department of Education encourages local communities to use school buildings, grounds, playing fields and facilities for appropriate purposes.

Data Notes:

  • For calendar year 2021 and 2022, income received from hire of school facilities may have been partially offset by waivers (due to Covid-19) applied against the operating expense in purchasing discounts.

  • Principals ensure that the proposed use of the facility is consistent with the values and goals of public education.

  • A written agreement is negotiated between the school and the community user outlining the rights and responsibilities of both parties.

  • School councils, the P&C and its sub committees are generally entitled to free use of school facilities as are a number of other organisations in accordance with the Community Use of School Facilities policy.

  • Other entities such as not-for-profit groups can gain access on a cost recovery basis. Private profit-making organisations pay a fee which is used to augment the school’s educational programs.
