Jamestown Community

Jamestown Community School is located between the northern end of the Mount Lofty Ranges and the southern end of the Flinders Ranges. This gives us an unique link with the ancient coastlines of Australia, and the geology of even the Trans-Antarctic Mountains!

Many families of our school children are involved in the mining industry or the wind farm developments and so we have an economic link with careers in geology and related careers. It is anticipated that this involvement will increase as the expansion of Olympic Dam attracts our school-leavers over the next five or so years.

It is difficult for students to learn about geology owing to the tyranny of distance, and our small numbers. Through the SEED program we have begun to develop a package that involves linking energy production and mining using as much internet delivery as we can.
