Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to the Eastern Goldfields College website. We want every student to take ownership of their learning and achieve their personal best while they are at our college so that they are able to continue on the pathway of their choosing once they complete their senior schooling.

Being a Principal of a senior college is an extremely rewarding job. Eastern Goldfields College is an Independent Public School which caters for Years 11 and 12, with around 600 students with a teaching staff of about 60 teachers plus ancillary staff. Our students and staff are co-located with Central Regional TAFE – Goldfields Campus and Curtin University Kalgoorlie. 

Students are able to access University, TAFE, apprenticeship, traineeship and employment pathways as they complete their senior schooling years. We aim to move students successfully into further education and training and/or employment and have them recognised as responsible and respectful ambassadors for the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder and beyond. 

Our students are encouraged to converse and conduct themselves in a mature and responsible manner. We value a strong work ethic that is underpinned by a desire for life-long learning and we build relationships with the wider community by developing shared values and expectations. 

The Eastern Goldfields name has long been associated with secondary education in Kalgoorlie-Boulder and surrounds and brings with it a great deal of tradition. While we draw on the lessons of the past, we look forward to future challenges and achievements. 

I am proud to be the Principal of Eastern Goldfields College and look forward to continuing to work towards making sure that each of our students achieves their goals. I invite you to explore our website to learn more about our college.
