Retired Educator Volunteers for Isolated Children’s Education
SUPPORTING ISOLATED STUDENT’S LEARNING
REVISE is a volunteer organisation which provides qualifed education workers to support the learning of isolated students. REVISE teachers travel to remote locations for placements which are usually of three to six weeks duration. While on placement REVISE teachers work with School of the Air (SOTA) staff, supervising children’s lessons. The placement supports or in many cases provides respite for the usual supervisor (mother or governess).
REVISE teachers work mainly within South Australia, but some placements also occur in Western New South Wales and South Western Queensland.
A sister organisation called VISE, is in the eastern states and organises similar volunteer sessions in all states.
Western Australia has its own REVISE scheme.
The Isolated Children’s Parents’ Association (ICPA).
The Port Augusta School of the Air is part of the Open Access College.
REVISE is proudly supported by the patronage of the South Australian Country Womens Association.
