Mount Isa School of the Air

Mount Isa School of the Air is one of seven in Queensland and currently has students enrolled from pre-school to year 10, in an area that extends east from the Northern Territory border to Richmond and south from Burketown to Birdsville.  Tours through the School give visitors a behind the scenes appreciation of the organisation required to run a school without classrooms.  Classes are conducted by radio or computer, and students proceed with independent study each day with assistance by a home supervisor, usually a parent or governess.
