About the program:
The Museum’s permanent exhibition Serving Australia places the Australian Jewish experience into the wider Australian narrative of military conflicts. Through an exploration of the contribution of Australian Jews to the Australian military, students gain an understanding of the ways in which Jews have served their country during times of war. Students will focus on primary source materials linked to the syllabus topic: Australia and World War I and Australia and World War II.
This program includes an exploratory session with a Museum educator and a first-hand testimony session from a former service-person.

- Due to limited locker space, we request that students do not bring backpacks.
- If the students plan to eat their lunch in the park after their visit, please ask them to bring very small bags so that we can put several bags in each locker.
- Please let us know before your visit if any of your students have special needs or learning difficulties so we can plan to accommodate their needs during the visit.
