Week 9 - 2018

Last week of 2018. This week you are to a number of things, some of which you may have already completed, that need to be done. The list below is not in order.
  1. Pack up your classroom/work space.
  2. Return all resources that have been issued from, or borrowed from, ASSOA. Returning students keep their science kit but need to return all year level resources they have. For any resources not returned in a useable condition an invoice will be issued for the replacement cost.
  3. If you will be enrolled with ASSOA next year and are moving please let the school know your new address.
  4. Check with your teacher if there is anything specific you need to complete.
  5. Complete, as a minimum, one of the Maths tasks located at https://sites.google.com/a/assoa.nt.edu.au/maths-resources/home. You are to think about what topic has caused you the most problems throughout the year and do the unit associated with it. Make sure you select the unit appropriate for the year level you are doing this year. This work will prepare you for the following year level.
  6. Overseas holiday - sounds good. Download the guide and plan your big overseas holiday.
  7. Decide on what books you might like to read during the holidays and get at least the first one organised.
There are no IDL's this week other than a final assembly on Thursday at 10:30.

If you are unsure then please contact your teacher.


Welcome to Middle Years at Alice Springs School of the Air. The program provides education to students in years 7, 8 and 9 living in remote and isolated areas.  

For 2019 Middle Year students begin classes on
Wednesday 30th January. 

Some students are on what are known as single sites where they are living and studying from home with IDL access. Others attend another school to use the computers to access IDL but do all their work through School of the Air and others are travelling and usually have no IDL access.

First IDL is Wednesday, time to be confirmed
This will be a home group meeting for all Middle Years students with access to IDL.

Communication is via this website. Once a week all students have a Home Group meeting.  In the meeting, any upcoming events are outlined as well as any reminders for specific work requirements. The meetings are also used to develop time management skills and to cover other skills that are important for the students to acquire. All IDL lessons are recorded and are made available via Google Drive. If you miss a Home Group or need to go back and check something you can download the recording and watch the session. To do this click on the link below and then download the recording you want. Once you have downloaded it onto your computer you can double click on it and it will run.

A full IDL  timetable can be obtained from the timetable page.

Rather than using IDL time from your scheduled classes if you have a presentation to do your teacher will organise a time on Friday afternoon for you to do it. The time shown on the IDL timetable wont be used every week. 

All students are to participate in the typing program. To access it you need a username and password and the link is on the navigation bar on the left. Progress will be reported on in the first semester and end of year reports. Returning students can continue from last year with the same username and password. If you are new you will be able to start the program after the Term 1 in-school. You will be given your username and password then.
