Boulder Primary School is a proud and historic school. Classified by the National Trust, the original school building was constructed of local stone in 1897, four years after the discovery of gold along the ‘Golden Mile’. The Boulder community initially built the school to meet the needs of the ‘Golden Mile’; and its history reflects the changing fortunes of gold mining in the Kalgoorlie-Boulder area. Many families have family members who have been part of the Boulder school community over generations; there is therefore a strong allegiance to the School.
Boulder Primary School is set on well established and attractive grounds. Students are taught in modern classrooms, more of which have been added to the original school. All classrooms have multimedia teaching facilities. There are dedicated science, computer and music rooms, an extensive Library, a canteen that operates every day, a dental clinic, two covered play areas, an oval and assorted playground equipment.
A rich cultural diversity is evident throughout the School, with approximately 30% of students being Aboriginal and a growing number of students from overseas countries. The school aims to provide quality learning programs in a supportive and nurturing school environment with the support and engagement of the school community.
