Now in its sixth-year, CITIC Pacific Mining’s partnership with the Clontarf Foundation is continuing to provide opportunities for

Aboriginal boys from the Pilbara to expand their knowledge, confidence and employment prospects.

CPM recently hosted a basketball game at the Sino Iron project between Clontarf’s local academy and site workers.

After the game, the boys got to know CPM staff a little better over dinner, gaining a better understanding of what life is like on a mine site.

These regular games aim to give the students a chance to build their confidence and learn more about the industry. It’s also a chance for our staff to learn more about Aboriginal culture.

Last month, we joined other supporters of Clontarf at the opening of their newly renovated central administration offices, in Perth.

WA Governor Kerry Sanderson declared the building officially open in front of more than 100 special guests.

The offices, located at Canning College in Bentley, are now home to administration staff who oversee Clontarf’s programs across Australia, including the Karratha Academy.
