Longreach School of Distance Education

Longreach School of Distance Education (LSODE) lives and breathes its vision of Excellence in Education for Isolated Families. Our Motto is 'Effort Conquers Distance' and our school is committed to providing every child with a balanced education in a virtual face to face environment. Our program is aimed at students achieving sustained, excellent academic results and to maximise the educational outcomes for every student enrolled in our school.


Our school is a very friendly family orientated school which is characterised by traditional rural values and progressive thinking. The nature of the school and the on-air program means that our teachers are 'in' every family home every day. In order for us to live our vision, there must be an honest and productive work relationship between the teacher and the home tutor. This contributes to a very positive school climate.

"Imagine a school where the playground is as vast as the outback and the partnership between home and school is legendary."
