Chrysalis would like to acknowledge the Australian Government funding provided by the Parliaments and Civics Education Rebate (PACER) to assist our Class 6 students to visit the Australian War Memorial tour, Museum of Australian Democracy, and Parliament house on their recent trip to Canberra. Students from the class undertook an education tour of the national capital, as well as visiting Mt Stromlo Observatory and Questacon. They were given the opportunity to participate in a variety of educational programs with a focus on Australia’s history, culture, heritage and democracy.
The Australian Government recognises the importance of all young Australians being able to visit the national capital as part of their Civics and Citizenship education. To assist in meeting the cost of the excursion the Australian Government is contributing funding of $30 per student under the Parliament and Civics Education Rebate program towards those costs. The rebate is paid directly to the school upon completion of the excursion.
