As a teacher in a remote Indigenous community of Central Australia, you will have the opportunity to develop your career through a unique desert teaching experience like no other. You will support young Territorians to reach their potential and help build brighter futures.
Teachers are required for schools in Indigenous communities which may cater early childhood, primary and secondary students (depending on the school/location).
Rockhampton Downs (Woayala)
|Full-time assistant teachers:
|Average student attendance:
||Preschool to Middle
|Distance to main town:
||160km northeast of Tennant Creek by road.
Rockhampton Downs School is located 160km northeast of Tennant Creek on a working cattle station. The population of the surrounding community is approximately 30 and the school provides education services to students from Wogayela Community and Kurntarpara Outstation. The school can be accessed all year round via road.
The school has excellent relations with the community and nearby Rockhampton Downs cattle station, although lack of facilities within the community and close proximity to Tennant Creek results in regular movement of community members between the station and the town.
Rockhampton Downs School is a member of Barkly Group School and provides education services to students from preschool to middle years.
