Outback School is a story of the daily life of children in the outback where schooling is done over the air. This beautifully illustrated book shows the fun that children can have even when being isolated by distances.
Nor Kersh's delightful illustrations reveal her intimate knowledge of the ways which school and daily life intersect for children in remote Australia, and the indispensable role School of the Air plays in their social and educational life.
