School communities have done an exceptional job in adapting to the changes required to operate safely in a Covid-19 environment. A key priority is to continue to support and sustain the operation of schools in this context.

Category 1: Life Safety Systems (fire alarm, fire detection and emergency lighting)
Category 2: Roof works
Category 3: Electrical works (other than life safety systems)
Category 4: Mechanical works
Category 5: Science labs (incl. gas works)
Category 6: Toilet facilities
Category 7: Windows projects
Category 8: Curricular requirements (excl. science labs)
Category 9: Fabric defects
Category 10: External environment projects (including playgrounds)
The scheme provides flexibility in determining which categories (or parts of categories) get approved in any given year.
