School Excursions in 2016

 

The 2016 Sydney Living Museums School Excursions brochures have been sent to every school in NSW and ACT.  

We also offer a range of travel and program subsidies to increase access for schools, including:

Unlocking Heritage Travel Subsidy 

Primary schools in NSW receiving RAM funding (with an FOEI of +100) are eligible to apply for a travel subsidy of up to $20 per student to attend one of over 30 heritage or History curriculum-linked education programs at eight Sydney Living Museums sites and nine National Parks and Wildlife sites.

Unlocking Heritage Convict Sleepover

Regional and rural primary schools across NSW can apply for funding to participate in a free convict-themed sleepover at the World Heritage-listed Hyde Park Barracks Museum, as well as a $20 per student travel subsidy.
