The Sydney Jewish Museum offers a wide range of innovative programs and resources for students and teachers, covering a range of subjects and levels.
At the Museum, we pride ourselves on our commitment to education. We invite you to explore our offerings below, to see how we can help support you in your teaching.
All education programs are linked to NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) syllabus outcomes. The Sydney Jewish Museum is a NESA-endorsed provider of professional development for the maintenance of accreditation at Professional Competence.
School Excursions in the Museum
Nobody could have predicted it in 1992, but our world-class exhibitions continue to attract tens of thousands of visitors a year. With hundreds of artefacts for students to explore, and over 30 survivors for them to meet, the experience of studying the Holocaust at the Sydney Jewish Museum is second to none.
“If you haven’t taken your students to the Sydney Jewish Museum, you haven’t prepared them for life”
– Director of Faith and Mission at St Vincent’s College, Potts Point
School Excursions Online
Though we are not able to welcome your students to the Sydney Jewish Museum at the moment, we would love to engage with them virtually via webinar. Benefit from the expertise and experience of our team of educators to create an engaging, thought-provoking experience for your students.
We run our Online Excursions through Zoom. All online excursions are designed to fit within one school period. For a double period, pick two webinars for $7 per student.
HSC In-Depth Webinars
Our education team is here to get Year 12 students through their HSC year with a series of webinars designed to help them excel in Modern History.
Through a four-part series of webinars, HSC students can extend themselves beyond their classroom learning or refresh their knowledge before the trial exams.
The Sydney Jewish Museum offers NESA-accredited professional development seminars for teachers throughout the school year for teachers. Participating teachers are presented with newly-developed materials and practical approaches to teaching these key subjects.
Most recently, teacher training has moved online, where our educators hold 90 minute webinars including an interactive presentation and a Q&A session. Teachers are given access to case studies and primary materials from the Museum’s collection, which they can incorporate into their classroom teaching.
The Museum offers free curriculum-linked teaching resources underpinned by rigorous research and expert subject knowledge. All of these resources are downloadable with the click of a button!
Sneak behind the scenes of the Museum to discover a range of case studies, videos, objects and images, that will help you bring history to life for your students.
