We are a family of 5 on a cattle property 3 hrs West of Emerald.  All 3 girls will be doing school via Distance Education this year, ekindy, Grade 1 and Grade 2.  We have a 18yr old govie who would love a hand juggling the school room, and learning a few tricks of the trade from a qualified teacher.  Our girls need help with maths and reading.
