THE PROGRAM
About PACER

Under PACER, students who learn about civics and citizenship in the classroom see their knowledge brought to life when they experience Canberra first hand. Students must visit Parliament House, The Museum of Australian Democracy and/or The National Electoral Education Centre and the Australian War Memorial. They also have the opportunity to visit a number of other sites of cultural and historical interest while in Canberra.

All PACER approved national institutions provide educational programs that directly align with the Australian Curriculum.

To qualify, schools must be located at least 150 kilometres from Canberra. Rebates are paid on a sliding scale with more money paid to schools further away from Canberra. An additional payment will be made for schools located on islands in remote geographic areas. In addition to linking your trip to civics and citizenship learning in the classroom, your school must complete all paperwork and acknowledge PACER funding in your regular school newsletter or equivalent. This is a fantastic way to share learnings and celebrate the experience with parents and the school community.
