The state government of Western Australia has unveiled plans to deliver 19 new schools through a PPP contract during the next four years.
The AU$300 million (US$281 million) PPP initiative will involve the construction of 16 new primary schools and three new high schools.
This announcement follows Western Australia's 4.3 % boost in budget, including an additional AU$188 million to cover student enrolments growth of about 11,000.
The government also committed an extra A$10 million next year to help with a transition to the Education Department's new student-centered funding model.
In early May the Victorian Government also announced a multi million dollar plan to build 11 new primary schools through PPP model in Melbourne's growth suburbs.
The government is planning the 12 new schools and expansions at a further seven schools as part of a A$500 million boost to education infrastructure in the 2014-15 Victorian State Budget.
Victoria already used the PPP model to build 12 schools on 11 different sites on a design, build, finance and maintenance basis.
