The Victorian Curriculum additions reflect a renewed commitment to strengthening multiculturalism in Australia. Our education programs deal with issues of identity, community, migration, multiculturalism and world religions. Educate your students and teachers to become more open and understanding of people’s differences and commonalities, by booking a school excursion or a teacher PD at the Jewish Museum of Australia.
Other topics include traditional festivals, milestones of life, religious rituals, Jewish migration and its place in Australian history and can enrich students from different year levels learning across a number of areas.
The Jewish Museum of Australia develops and presents a range of innovative education programs for both primary and secondary school students, Jewish and non-Jewish, that strategically target the new Victorian curriculum as well as Jewish studies curricula from Prep to Year 12.
