What is VISE and REVISE?

"VISE volunteers provide educational assistance to families and students in rural Australia. We also provide domestic and personal support in the case of emergencies or when respite is necessary.
VISE is a volunteer service established in 1989 by a small group of retired teachers and the Tennant Creek Lions Club in consultation with the Isolated Childrens Parents' Association (ICPA). The aim of VISE is to support the education of students in rural areas especially isolated outback families involved with distance education." VISE


"REVISE - is a volunteer organisation which provides qualified 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) Port Augusta staff, supervising children's lessons. The placement supports or in many cases provides respite for the usual supervisor (mother or governess)." SA ICPA

"REVISE is an independently incorporated volunteer organisation supporting isolated students' learning. It is guided by a management committee with representatives of parent and teacher groups. Its volunteer management is based in Adelaide. REVISE works in close collaboration with ICPA and is proudly under the patronage of SACWA, the South Australian Country Womens' Association." REVISE
