Australian Government assistance for National Capital excursion

Students from our school have recently undertaken an educational tour of the national capital.  While on this tour they participated in a variety of educational programmes focused on Australia’s history, culture, heritage and democracy.

The Australian Government recognises the importance of all young Australians being able to visit their National Capital as part of their civics and citizenship education.  To assist you (the parent) in meeting the cost of the excursion the Australian Government is contributing funding of $80 per eligible student under the Parliament and Civics Education Rebate program toward the travel expenses incurred.  This contribution will be paid directly to the school upon completion of the excursion. 

We would like to thank the Australian Government for their support of this program. 

This funding has been taken off the cost of the excursion to make it more affordable for our families.
