Year 5 students from Mount Pleasant Primary School were the lucky recipients of an all-expenses paid excursion on the Perth Heart of Gold Discovery Trail last week.
The excursion prize was one of two won at the Association of Independent Schools of Western Australia’s HASS Week Conference in July.
Following the successful launch of Perth’s #heartofgold Discovery Trail in 2017, the Gold Industry Group are continuing their annual celebration of Australia’s gold industry.
The launch of the trail’s reverse option will take place at a free community event on Saturday 20 October 2018 at The Perth Mint.
Gibbs Street Primary School and Swan Valley Anglican Community School students have been among the first to walk Perth's newest and first virtual gold trail on all expenses paid school excursions last month.
Gibbs Street Primary School won our Hit92.9 launch competition and Swan Valley Anglican Community School won our AISWA Humanities and Social Sciences Conference competition.
The #heartofgold Discovery Trail will be launched in Perth on Saturday 7 October, which is part of a long-term community engagement program aimed at educating and engaging the wider community on the rich history and importance of Australia's gold industry, with a strong focus on educating at a grass roots level.
