Milestones for Schools

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING CHANGE FOR THE 2022 BGA CAPITAL GRANTS SEMINAR

Please be advised a that the BGA Committee has recommended that the Annual BGA Seminar for schools wishing to apply for a Commonwealth Capital Grant for 2024 be changed from October to Thursday 25 August 2022 via Zoom.

Schools who are considering an application in the next round of funding, it is strongly suggested that key personnel attend this seminar.   The new date for the seminar will give schools additional time to consider applications for future refurbishment and construction needs in line with the School’s current Master Plan.  The application for Stage 1 Notice of Intent for Capital Grant Funding in 2024 will be available for schools to download from 1 September 2022 and applications are to be submitted by 24 November 2022.
