Kalgoorlie Boulder Community High School to reopen
Students at Kalgoorlie Boulder Community High School will return to school tomorrow (Tuesday 18 October) following extensive work to repair damage by vandals over the weekend.
Regional Executive Director Goldfields Region, Ken Perris, assured parents that the school would be safe and ready for students to return.
"The school principal, staff and others have worked extremely hard to get the school back up and running, and I am pleased to confirm that the school will be open tomorrow as normal,” he said.
“The community is proud of these new facilities and they are a positive step forward for Kalgoorlie Boulder Community High School.
“We’d now like to give teachers the opportunity to do what they do best and teach, and students the opportunity to learn.”
Stage 1 of a $45 million redevelopment of Kalgoorlie-Boulder Community High School was officially opened last Friday, with three new classroom blocks, a cafeteria, a refurbished design and technology centre, and upgraded gymnasium change rooms.
Repairs to the school included replacing windows, repairing electrical wiring and cleaning after vandals caused damage estimated at around $100 000 to classrooms and staffing areas.
