Peter Collier waltzed back into his former schools in Kalgoorlie-Boulder for the first time after he was appointed Education Minister.
The Liberal MP’s visit on Wednesday started at North Kalgoorlie Primary School, which he attended from 1965-71, before visiting Eastern Goldfields College and Boulder Primary School.
The Kalgoorlie Miner tagged along as Mr Collier, 53, toured the halls and classrooms at his former primary school.
This included him listening to part of Liz Kerr’s reading of Jack and the Beanstalk to her Year 1 and 2 students in room 15.
Mr Collier also stepped into Ally Dorotich’s Year 6 classroom – the very same in which he was taught all those years ago.
“The memories are still very vivid. I still remember every classroom I was taught in and every teacher I was taught by,” he said afterwards.
