The school holidays are being used as an opportune time to clear some of the school maintenance backlog in the region.
Tamworth MP Kevin Anderson said eight schools in the region would be getting "a significant maintenance blitz".
The local work is part of $35 million-plus being spent on 230 schools in the holidays, making up more than 30 per cent of the backlog.
Schools in Tamworth, Gunnedah, Dungowan, Woolomin, Timbumburi, Nundle and Attunga will benefit.
"This classroom blitz means the government is another step closer to delivering the election promise of clearing the school maintenance backlog," Mr Anderson said.
"We understand the importance of ensuring we provide the best facilities for the students and staff in this region and that includes attending to repairs and maintenance work to ensure existing schools remain in top condition ...
"Those local schools named will be receiving vital works, repairs and upgrades including new floor coverings, drainage, groundworks, fencing and painting."
Minister for Education Sarah Mitchell said the blitz was part of ensuring every child in NSW had access to state-of-the-art facilities.
"We are investing a record amount into the education system in NSW, because we know how important it is for every child - no matter where they live - has access to a quality education," Ms Mitchell said.

- Dungowan Public School: Fencing
- Woolomin Public School: Repairs

- Nundle Public School: Repairs
