Our education team has developed student programs that are aligned with the Australian Curriculum and TfEL for each gallery.
Our Education Program Manager or volunteer Museum educators can take your class for a lesson in a gallery - subject to availability. These lessons are inquiry based and encourage student participation. Be advised, at present we have a small team and can only provide limited Museum educator-facillitated sessions which book out quickly. While we try our best to accommodate all bookings, it's best to book at least two weeks in advance. Book now.
The Education Program Manager can also provide Professional Development tours and workshops for groups of teachers. In addition, special professional learning events are held throughout the year. Request to join our mailing list to receive information about these and other special programs.
In the Museum there are many galleries and educational experiences for your students to discover.
