Australian Government Assistance for National Capital Excursion
Students from our school will soon be undertaking an educational tour of the national capital. Students will be given the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational programs with a focus on Australia’s history, culture, heritage and democracy.
The Australian Government recognises the importance of all young Australians being able to visit the national capital as part of their Civics and Citizenship education. To assist families in meeting the cost of the excursion the Australian Government is contributing funding of $60 per student under the Parliament and Civics Education Rebate program towards those costs. The rebate is paid directly to the school upon completion of the excursion.
We would like to thank the Australian Government on their support of this program.
Staff and children will be visiting the following venues:
National Capital Exhibition
Royal Australian Mint
National Museum of Australia
National Dinosaur Museum
Old Parliament House
Electoral Education Centre
Australian War Memorial
Australian Institute of Sport
