Our School Context

The school caters for preschool, primary and middle years students who reside in isolated areas in the top half of the Northern Territory and students who are temporarily travelling. The term “School of the Air” refers to the old style delivery of lessons via HF Radio. Today the school delivers lessons via satellite, internet and telecommunication technologies. Paper based materials are still provided to students to complement their interactive learning.
