From the Torres Strait, where 17 school campuses sprawl across 48,000 square kilometres, to Birdsville State School on the edge of the desert, to Brisbane city, this state is one of nation’s most decentralised to teach in. Student enrolments range from one at Tannymorel State School near the New South Wales Border, to 3145 at Brisbane State High School. In every community, teachers are playing a key role in educating the next generation and changing the future one student at a time. During Queensland week, we want to celebrate that.
Today, we ask teachers what it is like to teach across Queensland and get a taste of regional, rural and remote life. Each day, we celebrate teachers or take a walk through some old school gates.
To every Queensland teacher, as we celebrate this week we thank you for the role you are playing to help make this state the incredible place it is.
Happy Queensland Week!
