Schools

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

Videos

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.
