Public schools across the Goulburn electorate have received a boost with almost $4 million worth of maintenance.
The schools were among 968 in NSW to receive additional maintenance work, clearing over half of the outstanding school maintenance list across the state.
Approximately $3,820,000 was spent in 26 schools across the Goulburn and Southern Highlands region, including Berrima Public School.
Education minister Sarah Mitchell said an estimated $200 million was spent on additional maintenance and upgrade projects at public schools across NSW in the last few months.
The works are part of a $1.3 billion election commitment by the state government.
"We are now over halfway to achieving our election commitment to wipe the additional maintenance backlog at our schools and we are on track to achieve it by July this year as promised," Ms Mitchell said.
"The effort made by tradespeople, builders and department staff across the state has been incredible, handling both the task of bushfire recovery for day one and pushing on with our maintenance commitment."

The maintenance focused on repairs and upgrades including roof works, new floor coverings, drainage, electrical work and painting.
Goulburn member Wendy Tuckerman MP welcomed the upgrades.
"I'm very pleased to hear about the significant amount of works that have been done in schools across the electorate in regards to repairs and maintenance, especially during such a busy time over the school holiday period," Mrs Tuckerman said.
