Date published: 1/07/2013

The first official visit by WA Governor Malcolm McCusker and Mrs Tonya McCusker  to the Goldfields-Esperance region was an outstanding success. The Governor and Mrs McCusker were accompanied by 1023 Young Australian of the Year Akram Azimi for the Goldfields part of the visit.

They visited the CAPS school in Coolgardie, St Mary's and Boulder Primary Schools in Kalgoorlie, Norseman District High School, Esperance and Nulsen Primary Schools in Esperance as well as Esperance Senior High School and the Anglican Community School. They also met with local government and community groups in the towns and attended civic receptions organised in their honour by the City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder and the Shire of Esperance.

The Governor who is renowned for his philanthropy was keen to spread the message to school children and promote 
"Kids Who Give WA" , a program that encourages and nurtures the social conscience of young people, and celebrates and rewards outstanding acts of care, kindness and giving by young Western Australians.
