Year 8 Centre of Resources Excellence (CoRE) students from Kent Street Senior High School will demonstrate how they have made connections between their learning, the resources industry and their future career pathways at a presentation in Kalgoorlie on Friday 29 June.
As part of a four-day field trip to Kalgoorlie, the students will demonstrate in a 30-minute presentation how the CoRE program, titled 'Red Gold', has supported their approach to learning within the resources industry. The learning model has provided them with the understanding, skills and knowledge, within resources industry context to make future career pathways within the gold and iron ore industries.
The Kent Street Senior High School CoRE connects education and industry, bridging the gap between government, secondary schools and industry by providing students with resource sector STEM opportunities in ATAR, General and VET pathways.
The program seeks to foster quality connections in the Goldfields region for expansion of the program into Kalgoorlie, Merredin and Tom Price secondary schools in 2019.
The event seeks to develop ongoing partnerships within the Goldfields region, to ensure the growth of this entry on application program is facilitated, which will rely on industry sponsorship and marketing.
The community and industry is invited to hear from students who will present at the WASM Graduates Hall from 5:30pm to 8pm on Friday 29 June.
