We visited the School of the Air in Alice Springs this afternoon ... and absolutely extraordinary it was too. It provides education (now via the internet) to children under 12 years old and who live on Outback cattle stations and other settlements far too remote to reach regular schools. What an insight into life in this distant areas it gave.
We saw a lesson being broadcast and lots of examples of children's work. As a retired teacher, mostly of this age group, it was particularly fascinating. Also especially amusing as a stitcher was a large wall covered in children's embroidery. The scenes shown were charming.
