The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Kalgoorlie-Boulder Chamber of Commerce and Industry, representatives from local schools and the Goldfields Esperance Development Commission developed and launched the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Education Charter earlier this month.
Through the Charter, the City and partners will facilitate continuous engagement in local education, training and research, encouraging lifelong learning for all members of the Kalgoorlie-Boulder community.

All that glittered was gold on Saturday night at the Kalgoorlie-Boulder Racing Club, as another year of graduates from the WA School of Mines were celebrated amongst 450 industry representatives at their annual Alumni Ball.
Traditionally held in Perth, hosting the ball for the first time in the Goldfields was the brainchild of the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s Mayor John Bowler, who wished to align it with the City’s celebration of 125 years since gold was first discovered in the area.
We celebrated one of the nation’s biggest gold rushes at the official opening of Kalgoorlie-Boulder’s #heartofgold Discovery Trail over the weekend, which saw scores of locals, tourists, students and families alike joining in the fun.

The WASM Wallabies will compete in the Intercollegiate Mining Games Competition (ICMC) in Montana next month thanks to proud sponsors in the community including Ramelius Resources and Gold Fields Australia.
Commonly known as the Mining Games, the competition was established in 1978 in memory of the 1972 Sunshine Mine disaster in Idaho. The annual event honours the fallen miners from around the world and highlights the need for a continued focus on protecting the lives of every person working in mining. Each year students from mining schools across the globe compete in the ICMC.
Gold Industry Group founding member Ramelius Resources is supporting future gold industry leaders through the Tim Prime Memorial Scholarship Program.
Run in conjunction with Curtin University’s Western Australian School of Mines (WASM), the one, two or three-year scholarship is helping WASM students reach their full potential.
