Eastern Goldfields Education Support Centre (EGESC) is a school for students with mild to severe intellectual disabilities. While this criterion is the primary basis for enrolment, students typically present with a broader range of disabilities including autism spectrum disorder, psychological disorders, physical disability or sensory impairment.
EGESC has firmly established itself within the Goldfields community, earning widespread acceptance and recognition through its rich history dating back to 1946. With the aim of building strong connections, EGESC seeks to engage families, the broader community, and external agencies, fostering collaborative relationships for the benefit of our students.
As a partner school to both Kalgoorlie Boulder Community High School (KBCHS) and Eastern Goldfields College (EGC), EGESC provides high-quality personalised programs with links to the WA Curriculum to meet the diverse and complex needs of student in years 7 to 12 across two campuses to ensure comprehensive educational accessibility.
Our primary campus is located alongside KBCHS where we employ a student-centred approach to drive the development, ongoing implementation and regular review Individual Education Plans. Our senior campus is located with EGC in the heart of Kalgoorlie where senior students engage in mixed learning programs as part of our senior pathways.
These programs are purposely designed to provide students with opportunities to further develop and practice workplace skills, community engagement and independent living with access to TAFE, the Goldfields Arts Centre, Kingsbury Park, the adjacent shopping precinct and local community services.
For eligible students, the Public Transport Authority (PTA) provides transportation to EGESC through the School Bus Service for students living in Kalgoorlie-Boulder, Coolgardie, Kambalda and surrounding areas.
