Blackall Range Independent School is ‘small by design.’
Our teaching is based on a relationship model. This means that to effectively educate a child, first you must know who you are teaching. Smaller-sized classrooms enable us to do this more effectively with each child.
Multi-age classrooms enable flexibility for the children on their individual learning journey. Areas of learning strength can be pursued beyond their ‘grade’, whilst other areas can be nurtured and supported.
