All Programs

Come face-to-face with history

Our programs give students of all ages opportunities to explore a diverse range of historical and contemporary issues and themes in authentic contexts.

Linking curriculum outcomes and priorities to immersive experiences in original historical settings, our programs bring to life a remarkable group of people, events and places.

A central feature of all our programs is the use and evaluation of primary and secondary sources as a foundation for developing content knowledge, skills, literacies, values and attitudes that are critical to academic learning and to social and civic life. Our programs immerse students in experiences that are active, imaginative, critical and reflective.

 

Learning about Australian history in authentic environments which relate to the topics they’re studying is an invaluable experience for students.
