Programs for students
We develop and present a range of innovative education programs for primary and secondary school students, both Jewish and non-Jewish, that strategically target the new Victorian Curriculum, as well as the Jewish studies curricula from Prep to Year 12.
The newly introduced Ethical and Intercultural capabilities to the new Victorian Curriculum reflect a renewed commitment to strengthening multiculturalism in Australia. Our work reinforces Victoria’s stated commitment to raising young citizens who are able to engage positively in our multicultural society. Our education programs deal with issues of identity, community, migration, multiculturalism and world religions.
Booking a school excursion to the Jewish Museum of Australia is the ideal way to educate and encourage your students and teachers to become more open and understanding of peoples’ differences and commonalities.

Running between July and November 2019, Museums Together will see 100 students from King David School and Sirius College get to know each other, train as guides at their respective museums, and act as hosts when their counterparts visit - cultivating a deeper understanding of their own culture while encountering another not as close to home. The pilot program will close at the Islamic Museum of Australia, and is supported by the Sidney Myer Fund.

This new education program offers students a hands-on, tactile exploration of a personal World War One story. Through a soldier’s suitcase and its contents, donated to the Museum by the family of Dalbert Hallenstein, students can start to put together the heartbreaking human story of war. This is a unique opportunity for students to understand the role of research and make their own contribution.
