Mount Isa School of the Air 

Mount Isa School of the Air, is an eKindy-Year 10 distance education school, based in Mount Isa providing education to a very broad geographic base across North West Queensland and beyond. Given that our school community extends across one quarter of Queensland, we have a wonderfully supportive, caring and active school community. There is strong cohesion in relationships between staff, parents, home tutors/governesses and students, which reflects solidly in our school opinion surveys and is a key strength of our school.

The school offers a blended curriculum with school based digital classrooms and learning, combined with hybrid (paper & digital) curriculum, delivered by a home tutor.  The curriculum is further enhanced by the unique and pivotal yearlong field event program delivered across our regional areas by our Field Team.
