Principal's Welcome to Our School

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the Longreach School of Distance Education website.

At the Longreach School of Distance Education (LSODE) we believe that 'Effort Conquers Distance'. The Longreach School of Distance Education is committed to providing every child with a balanced education in a supportive environment. Our goal is to maximise the educational outcomes for every student through providing a range of curricular and extra curricular activities. Our staff are committed to achieving this goal for every student. Our aim is to overcome the challenges created by distance in order to educate our children to reach their full potential.

At LSODE, education is a team effort between home and school and our school community is like an extended family. It is the extra effort made by the staff, students and parents that brings everyone closer together. We believe for a child to achieve the very best they can, there needs to be a very positive relationship between the school and home. At the Longreach School of Distance Education, we are a 'Team' who bring experience and enthusiasm to our role to meet the needs of all learners so they can engage in all opportunities and achieve their dreams and aspirations.

There is a strong sense of pride in this school; pride in the magnificent grounds, in the very high academic achievements of our students, their presentation and conduct, our teaching standards, our facilities, our use of technology and general resources. We hope that you and your children will look back on your years at the Longreach School of Distance Education with pride and fond memories of hard work, rewarding experiences and life-long friendships.

We hope that your association with our school will be a happy one and that your involvement with our activities will help to further a spirit of co-operation and cohesion within the school community.

I am very proud to be the Principal of a great school that provides ‘Excellence in Education for Isolated Families’.
