Kimberley School of the Air (KSOTA) is located in Derby, Western Australia and services families living in remote locations throughout the 423,517 square kilometres of the Kimberley. We are a West Australian public primary school teaching children from Kindergarten to Year 6, with a weekly playgroup. KSOTA was founded in 1960 and was originally based at Derby Airport, sharing radio services with the Royal Flying Doctors Service.
Today we are located our own purpose built site in the heart of Derby and our students attend Air lessons using WebEx which is a web platform similar to Skype and FaceTime. We currently have a Kindergarten and Pre-Primary class, a Year 1/2/3 class and a Year 4/5/6 class. In addition to attending air lessons, students receive home visits from their teachers and attend multiple camps throughout the school year.
If your child was born between 1st July 2018 and 30th June 2019 they are eligible to enrol for Kindy 2023. Please see enrolment section.
