Fairbridge Western Australia Inc acknowledges the generous support and donations with the following organisations, as we work together in assisting young people to reach their full potential.
Alcoa is a global leader in bauxite, alumina and aluminium production with a vision to reinvent the aluminium industry for a sustainable future. The company has a proud history in the Peel region of Western Australia that it aims to continue by adding value to the communities near where it operates, providing jobs for future generations, and protecting and preserving the environment including through world-leading research and rehabilitation.
Through support from Alcoa and the Alcoa Sustainable Employment and Life Outcomes Initiative, Fairbridge employs three apprentices or trainees annually for a one-year fixed term. The apprenticeships and traineeships are in work streams that help maintain and operate the historic Fairbridge Village, near Pinjarra, including carpentry and joinery, painting and decorating, plumbing, and conservation and ecosystem management.
Fairbridge would like to thank Lotterywest for its valuable funding to provide buses to transport its growing student numbers from botht he Peel and Kalgoorlie region. Without this valuable service provision the College would not be as successful.
