2)         Funding is managed centrally and is allocated to address needs in schools as they arise.  Schools may elect to manage their own faults and breakdowns up to a maximum of $5000 per event and receive an allocation from the central maintenance account. Schools may also use part of their one-line budget to undertake maintenance and minor works projects.
