Chevron Australia


About the Partnership

The partnership between Chevron Australia and Onslow School is an investment in education, wellbeing and career pathways for students.

The Onslow Education Collaboration (OEC) was established in 2020 with the goal of providing students with educational opportunities on par to those in metropolitan areas.

Chevron’s support provides staffing resources including the employment of Learning Support Coordinator, Engagement Pathways Teacher, Student Support Officer and Education Assistant for the on the ground support for Telethon Speech and Hearing therapy.

The OEC focuses on collective impact, with multiple partners contributing to agreed long-term, measurable outcomes representing a shared value project.

This OEC can include but is not limited to Onslow School having access to other Chevron Australia community partnerships which may include the following programs, depending on school programming and resourcing:

  • Telethon Speech and Hearing: ear health screenings, speech and occupational therapy
  • Zero2Hero: mental health programs
  • Australian Earth Science Education (AusEarthEd) WA: STEM incursions
  • Swan Districts Football Club (Swans Onslow): homework club and the school engagement program
  • CSIRO: Living STEM Indigenous Learnings in the Classroom
  • Chamber of Minerals & Energy: Digital Technologies


The Chevron Pilbara Ear Health Program, delivered by Telethon Speech & Hearing, visits the school every term and offers a free hearing and ear health screening check for students. A screener performs some general tests which may include looking in your child’s ear with an ear light, plus giving your child two quick examinations to measure how well the ear is working plus performing a basic hearing test.  Ear disease can cause hearing loss, and hearing loss stops children accessing education.   Ear disease is significantly higher among Aboriginal children and has life long consequences without early prevention and treatment.

As an extension of the Chevron Ear Health program, TSH provides speech and occupational therapy to our 4-8 year old students who are not meeting their age-appropriate milestones, ensuring they receive wrap-around supports tailored to their individual needs. The multi-mode approach to therapy, delivered by TSH’s allied health team, will see our students gain access to in-class screenings, assessments, group and individual therapy sessions in addition to teacher and parent education, mentoring and training sessions. The service provisions work in synergy with the existing supports provided by TSH’s audiologists and is one of the only integrated, school-based programs in the state.
