Our business values education and is committed to supporting educational opportunities for young people in the Pilbara.

The Groundbreaker schools' programme is a key focus of the 50th commemorations and is made up of three components:

· Lesson plans for pre-primary - year 12
· Groundbreaker excursions/incursions
· Student competitions


These videos from the Groundbreaker Trail highlight some of the key initiatives of the last 50 years. They cover the four topics being explored by the Schools programme - mining, technology, resources and innovation.

If you are a teacher, the 'Mine of the Future' video is relevant to the learning outcomes of the Year 4 - 6 Lesson plans, while 'Extraordinary Growth, Extraordinary Times' is particularly suitable for students in Year 10 - 12.
