Kimberley Schools Project

The Kimberley Schools Project (KSP) provides $25 million of Royalties for Regions funding to strengthen and advance existing strategies to improve educational outcomes, and so underpin broader economic and social development in the region.

Whilst there are pockets of educational excellence in the Kimberley, student outcomes lag behind those of other regions. In order to close the gap in educational outcomes, the project seeks to: empower communities outside the school gates and more effectively target resources to teachers and principals inside the school gates.

The need for the project was initially identified in the Kimberley Development Commission’s 2036 and Beyond: A Regional Investment Blueprint for the Kimberley. The project is also one of ten priority actions in the Regional Services Reform Unit’s Resilient Families, Stronger Communities roadmap.

Project Partners: Department of Education, Catholic Education, Association of Independent Schools WA  Kimberley Development Commission, Regional Services Reform Unit, Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD).
