Students from isolated zones

Updated in 2020

Student identification

Identification of the number of students from isolated areas of the State attending each non-State school is required to assist with the allocation of the needs component of recurrent assistance. Student isolation is based on the student’s home address when not attending school.

Home address means the residential address where the student would normally live with a parent/guardian when not attending school.

A map of student isolation is shown below.

Only students whose home address is designated Remote Australia (NEW!) or Very Remote Australia should be included in this section of the collection.

Note: Cloncurry and some areas of Mount Isa are designated Remote Australia. Schools from these areas should use the Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) mapping tool to determine the designation of their home addresses.

Examples of the address searches:
