Parents, community members, politicians and children are working together across New South Wales to have unflued gas heating removed from public school classrooms.


Blue Mountains City Council


NSW Teachers Federation

National Toxics Network

NSW/ACT Independent Education Union

Doctors for the Environment

The Asthma Foundation NSW

Carbon Monoxide – The Silent Killer


“State and Federal governments need to] act on a proactive basis on what is a commonsense issue. The heaters are known as ‘low-NOx’, not ‘no NOx’, which indicates there is a problem.” The Hon Phil Koperberg MP, former NSW member for the Blue Mountains

Mr Barry Robert O'FARRELL, MP, Premier

“It’s extraordinary when you have the DET continuing with its heating policy while NSW Health advises people not to have unflued gas heaters in their homes — it’s a massive contradiction.” The Hon Ray Williams, Member for Hawkesbury

“Children in public education deserve at least the same standard of care as those in private schools. The ongoing replacement of unflued gas heaters with so-called 'low-NOx' burners is throwing away good money.” John Kaye, MP, Greens
