Isolated Schools Project
In January of this year ten University of Southern Queensland student teachers, each with their own preconceived idea of the West, were ready to confront the unknown experience of teaching in a rural area in North or South West Queensland, For the next three weeks we would live and breathe the role of a teacher within a rural community and have an unforgettable experience. Through the Isolated Schools Project we would be provided with many advantageous experiences including multi-level planning and timetabling; pupil free days; enrolment and administration procedures. The project would present us with an extremely beneficial teaching experience and an opportunity to discover life within a rural community. After such enjoyable experiences, we would have no hesitation in accepting a teaching position within a small rural community, You have more to gain than to lose through participating in the Isolated Schools Project therefore, we highly recommend other prospective teachers to take up the challenge.
