    I think what I would say to someone who is considering Mt. Isa or a remote community is, to just do it. You are not going to know what you are missing out on if you just stay at home, stay in your comfort zone. Coming out here, you will experience stuff that you will never have experienced before. Genuinely, the best thing I have ever done. Hi, my name is Emily Craven and I am a QUT graduate in Education and I now teach full time at Spinifex State College in Mount Isa. My dad is actually a phys-ed teacher, I saw all the fun that he had while…

    Teaching Tips 6: Using chants, rhymes and rounds

Are you ready? Concentration now beginning. And so they’ve had the same words twice, first time they’ve stressed every syllable and then the second time they’ve condensed it already to two beats.
