National Education Growth Plan

Budget 2019 allocated $1.2 billion for school classrooms - the largest ever single investment in school property. The multi-year funding gives certainty to schools, parents, and the construction sector.

Hundreds of millions of dollars will be invested as part of the National Education Growth Plan (NEGP) - a long-term plan to accommodate 100,000 extra children entering school in the next 10 years. The NEGP identifies where new schools may need to be built or additional classrooms added to schools that are growing.

Details of a new primary school in Auckland and more than 200 new classrooms and 24 additional special education satellite units across the 2 regions were also announced.

Other area growth plans will be announced later this year.
