Oodnadatta Aboriginal School is located at Oodnadatta near the western edge of the Simpson Desert in the far north of South Australia. The learning community is built on trust and respect. We believe that education is the cornerstone of the future; teaching and learning are a life long process. High expectations are set for all staff and students. The school aims to provide a balanced curriculum and has developed a specific literacy and numeracy plan.
Individual learning plans are in place for each student. Positive relationships with students provide the foundation for planning, teaching and learning.
