The most valuable learning experience for both students and teachers is to participate in one of our facilitated programs. The goal of all our programs is to assist students to remember, interpret and understand the Australian experience of war and its enduring impact on Australian society.
Programs draw on real objects and fascinating stories, using hands-on items and interactive discussion to engage students. All programs are linked to national curriculum profiles for History, Civics & Citizenship, English, Visual Arts, Science and Technology.

School wreathlayings and Last Post Ceremony
In addition to education programs, the Memorial has a specially designed commemorative activity for school groups: the School Wreath Laying Ceremony. If you would like to book a School Wreathlaying, please ensure that you note this in the "special comments" when you book online. Please note that this program is not available on weekends.
There is also limited availability each day for visiting school groups to attend the Last Post Ceremony. You can email a request but please note that due to limited capacity, not all groups can be accommodated. Please wait for confirmation from the Memorial before arranging to attend the Last Post Ceremony. If attending, be aware that students will be standing for up to 45 minutes in the outdoors prior to and during the ceremony. Ensure you prepare adequately, bringing sufficient water and seasonally-appropriate clothing for your students.
