Learning partnerships


At Cairns School of Distance Education we recognise the importance of each child’s unique qualities. We understand the importance of the relationship between the educator at home, educators at school and the student. Educating your child is a team approach. We value communication and community participation.


In prep to year 6 we provide opportunities for all students to:

  • engage in stimulating and challenging programs with a core focus on literacy and numeracy

  • use technology to learn about themselves, their community and the world they live in

  • learn in a safe and supportive environment

  • build positive relationships with staff and other students

  • achieve success as a learner through a range of experiences.
