Unique subsidy program


Joint visit to the Jewish Holocaust Centre and the Jewish Museum of Australia

To understand the Holocaust and what was lost, one needs to understand who is a Jew and the Jewish Community.

Would you like to bring your school on a subsidised excursion to both the Jewish Museum of Australia and the Jewish Holocaust Centre?

As part of this program, students will engage with the Jewish community of Victoria by learning about Jewish heritage, art, religion and contemporary Australian Jewish culture and identity at the Jewish Museum. Then at the Holocaust Centre, students will explore the consequences of hatred, prejudice and racism and have the precious opportunity to meet one of the few remaining Holocaust survivors.

This subsidised program will pay for both Museums’ entry fees, transport up to the value of $1,000, one Casual Relief Teacher per school up to the value of $283.90 and lunch provided to all students and teachers. Additional or costs that exceed these levels are to be covered by the school. Please read bookings term and conditions for more details. 

This exciting new program is open to a limited number of secondary schools. This is an opportunity not to be missed!
