History of SOTA

School of the Air was established in 1958, with support from the Royal Flying Doctor Service. Using two-way radios, students on remote properties became connected with peers and their teachers.

Today, advanced technology connects teachers and students in realtime. Students can see, talk, collaborate, and receive immediate feedback from classmates and teachers. Students are also supported by email and subject/year level websites.

School of the Air is the mainstay of education for remote and isolated families.

Open Access College, an amalgamation of the SA Correspondence School and School of the Air, was established in 1991.
