The Gold Industry Group (GIG) is proud to connect communities across Western Australia, through its support for Netball WA’s NAIDOC Netball Carnival tomorrow.
The NAIDOC Netball Carnival is one of the largest Indigenous sporting participation events in Australia, with more than 110 teams set to compete.
Ten Indigenous girls from the Gold Industry Group backed Shooting Stars education program were rewarded for their achievements this month, taking part in an action-packed leadership camp in Perth.
A wide variety of activities were in store for the girls, who range from year 9 to 12 and hail from regional communities as far flung as Carnarvon, Mullewa, Meekatharra, Narrogin and Leonora.
The Gold Industry Group is making a significant contribution to Western Australia’s indigenous communities through its ground-breaking partnership with Netball WA, West Coast Fever and Shooting Stars.
As the first Premier Partner of Shooting Stars, the Group’s partnership will see a new Shooting Stars trial site be identified and established later in 2019, expanding the program beyond its existing footprint in regional WA.
The Gold Industry Group are delighted to announce it has committed $5 million to netball in Western Australia in a record partnership deal.
The proceeds will help underpin development of netball from the grassroots level through to the elite across Netball WA, West Coast Fever and Shooting Stars.
With the support of Gold Fields’ Australian Foundation, St Barbara Limited and Saracen Mineral Holdings, Shooting Stars officially launched its eighth site in Western Australia.
Leonora will be Shooting Stars’ first program based in Goldfields, located 833 km northeast of Perth and will engage up to 35 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls from years 4-10 at Leonora District High School.
St Barbara has joined Saracen Mineral Holdings in forming a partnership with Shooting Stars to establish the Program in Leonora.
St Barbara will inject $300,000 into the Shooting Stars program over the next three years, which has already seen a substantial impact within the Leonora site.
Saracen Mineral Holdings is funding the start-up of Netball WA's Shooting Stars program in Leonora, which uses netball to encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander girls to engage in school.
