School of the Air kindergarten students have got together for the first time to have a bit of fun, starting with a concert tonight.

Teachers Jodie Hartwig and Peta Norman have met their 20 students face-to-face this week, including one from Hay and two from Tibooburra.

“They have come together for the first time,” Ms Hartwig said.

“They see each other for their satellite lessons.

“During the week they will partake in sport and music lessons, as well as having a disco.”

The students have also been preparing for a concert in Sturt Park at 6pm today and tomorrow they are all off to the pool.

As well as teaching the students, the teachers have been working with their parents.

“We had the Isolated Parents Association conference and the home tutors conference,” Ms Hartwig said.

“Part of this week has involved working with the students. The other part has been working with their supervisors - which include governesses and governors.”

Ms Hartwig said the students have been very well-behaved.

“They were very tired in the first few days,” she said. “But it has been great.”
