School Overview

Kambalda West District High School is a Level Five District High School catering for students from Kindergarten to Year 10. Located 56 km south-east of Kalgoorlie-Boulder, the school is structured into three phases of learning. These are:
Early Childhood (K-2); Middle Childhood (3-6); and Middle Schooling (7-10).

Currently experiencing a decline in numbers, Kambalda West DHS has enrolments fluctuating between 270 - 280 students. There is a dedicated and professional staff comprised of both experienced and graduate teachers. These teachers are supported by highly skilled support staff who have a long affiliation with the wider community of Kambalda. Together they work hard to provide educational programs and build strong relationships that will make a difference in the social, emotional, physical and academic development of students.

Kambalda West District High School is a school that is solution-focused and works to cater for the individual needs of students. Students are encouraged to develop a growth mindset through goal setting and to be accountable for their own learning. There is a strong emphasis on early intervention strategies with extended access to speech pathology, occupational therapy and specialist Literacy and Numeracy support in K - 2. Increased access to School Psychology Services, a Chaplain and Interagency Services including Headspace provide additional support for the positive mental health and well being of students.

Our vision is based on the following values: Respect, Excellence, Aspiration, Connection and Harmony. (REACH) Combined with our school motto 'Citizenship and Success' students are provided with a strong framework for future success in any field they choose.

Kambalda West DHS enjoys a very positive relationship with the community with support from a strong and hard-working P & C, an active School Council and support from local businesses especially with sponsorship for school events and work placements for our Year 10 students. The 2018 goals for Kambalda West DHS are to become a school of choice for parents and to build and maintain strong and authentic links to the wider Kambalda community.
