The Parliament and Civics Education Rebate (Pacer)
The Parliament and Civics Education Rebate (PACER) is an initiative of the Australian Government which provides some financial assistance for students in Year 4-12 across Australia to travel to Canberra, the nation’s capital.
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 visit Parliament House, the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House and/or the National Electoral Education Centre and the Australian War Memorial, and have the opportunity to visit a number of other sites of cultural and historical interest.
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. 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.
If you require assistance or further details please contact PACER on 1300 368 248 or by email firstname.lastname@example.org
