Why aren't schools doing anything about it? Print

It's not your school's fault

The current inflexible Department of Education and Training policy specifies the installation of unflued ‘low-NOX’ heaters in NSW public schools. Despite the concerns of parents, teachers and health professionals, new schools are still being fitted with unflued gas heaters.

Under the Building the Education Revolution funding, brand new classrooms and administrative buildings are being fitted with unflued gas heating despite the outrage and opposition of teachers and parents.

Teacher and Parent support

Whilst the NSW Teachers Federation and the P&C Federation support the removal of unflued gas heaters, the situation has continued to be unaddressed by the DET for the last five years.
