The "prison-like" barbed wire fencing.at Corrimal High School was removed just before Christmas.
But no such presents are coming Bellambi Public School's way anytime soon, much to the anger of Keira MP Ryan Park.
Mr Park said while Corrimal High had begun replacing the fencing using their own funds, the NSW Government was refusing to provide any extra funding to neighbouring Bellambi PS to have this fencing replaced.
He said school fencing should not be comparable to something people would see around a jail or corrections facility.
"I have immediately requested a meeting with the Education Minister to discuss this issue because it is simply not acceptable in 2020, for barbed wire to be used as perimeter fencing at schools," Mr Park said.
"I am not happy that Corrimal High has had to use their own existing funds and I want the Government to reverse the decision so Bellambi Public School can get more appropriate fencing for their perimeter.
"I have also asked the Minister to provide me a list of schools across NSW who have this fencing and I'll be interested to see if any are in the Premier's or Minister's electorates."
Mr Park recently received a response to a letter he wrote to NSW Education Minister Sarah Mitchell.
The letter was written by Parliamentary Secretary for Education Kevin Conolly MP, responding on behalf of Ms Mitchell.
In the correspondence, seen by the Mercury, Mr Conolly said Corrimal High School and Bellambi Public School have different types of perimeter fencing - all of which are in good condition.
"While the Department no longer installs barbed wire security fencing it is still in use at a number of our schools," he wrote.
"There are currently no plans to replace the barbed wire fencing sections at Corrimal High School or Bellambi High School however, School Infrastructure NSW will explore options for fencing replacement as part of Corrimal High School's fire damage repairs subject to funding being available for this.
"The principals may nominate the replacement of barbed wire fencing in a future capital works program based on school priorities."
