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.
The main learning groups are housed in four separate buildings:
Early Years, Prep – Grade Two
Teachers: Louise Cameron & Kirsten Cranwell assisted by Nikki Sheilds & Rachel Bowers
Primary Years, Grades Three – Five
Teachers: Danielle Hicks assisted by Eva Carless
Middle Years, Grades Six – Nine

Senior Years, Grades Ten, Eleven & Twelve
