Mt Isa SOA (Queensland) was established in 1964. Today, the school is located in the campus of Kalkadoon State High School and has students from Preschool to Year 10. Every student is provided with a mail delivered printed program with accompanying resources. This material is then supplemented by on-air lessons. Each preschool student receives one half-hour lesson per week. Years 1–7 students receive one half-hour on air lesson each day and secondary students receive at least one half-hour lesson per week for each subject in which they are enrolled.
Students also receive a HF radio for daily contact with their teacher and their classmates, and a program of field activities. These field activities include a week-long minischool and give SOA students the opportunity to participate in excursions and camps with other students – both SOA and regular. Students in Years 4–10 also have the opportunity to attend a school camp with their classmates each year.
Most of the families attending Mt Isa SOA live within 200–400 km of the school, although some live more than 800 km away. There are also some students attending the school who live in the Northern Territory. But no matter how far they live from the school, the annual sports day and graduation is attended by almost all students.
