Going to school in Australia

A teacher from Manchester has been teaching for a year in Australia. She has written this text about the Australian school system for her class back home.

Here in Australia the school year starts at the beginning of February, after the long summer holidays, and there are four terms of 9-10 weeks each. The school day usually starts at about 8 am, Monday to Friday going on until 2.30 or 3 pm. After that we have extra activities like music and drama. The Australians are crazy about sport, rugby and cricket being especially popular.

Education is organized by the individual states (New South Wales, Queensland, etc.). In each state there are free schools (“government schools”) attended by almost 70% of all Australian students. The other 30-40% go to fee-paying independent schools. At both types of school the students usually wear uniform. All children must start school by the age of 6 (earlier in some states), and they must stay at school until they are 15 (when they are usually in Year 10), with most Australian students staying on until the end of the final Year 12.

The national curriculum regulates what Australians learn at both government and independent schools in all states. The eight main subject areas are Maths, Society and the Environment, Science, the Arts, Economics, Technology Health and Physical Education - and English. English is a second language for many students in Australia - for immigrants and Aboriginal families. Special English lessons are very important in the Northern Territory, where there are a large number of Aboriginal students (33%). This territory is huge, with outback desert, tropical rainforest, few towns, and a very scattered population.

One answer to this problem is the “School of the Air”, a radio service offering schooling for younger children in isolated areas. It was started in Alice Springs in the 1950s. This system has developed, and today multimedia IT is an important aspect of distance education for all ages. Now a good education can be given to children in Aboriginal settlements and in isolated small schools and farms in the outback. Not surprisingly, distance learning systems are used in almost all states in Australia.
