Our topic this term is Canada. What things would you like to find out about in our topic work? What do you already know about Canada?

The Australian Outback

We have been learning about two vital services in the Australian outback – The School of the Air and the Flying doctor service.
We found out that if you live in the Australian outback you might not have a school to go to so you have your lessons over the radio ( or more recently, the internet). You sit in your house at the same time as all your classmates and listen to a teacher deliever a lesson. You are able to talk to your teacher and friends over the radio and once or twice a year you go on a residential trip to meet them.

The Royal Flying Docor service began in 1928 when it was realised that there was a great need for doctors to get to remote communities and what better and quicker way than by plane!

What can you find out about these services?
