- A detailed excursion plan will be emailed on confirmation of your visit
- We recommend that the students eat morning tea on arrival as they’re usually hungry and the sessions can then be run uninterrupted.
- In normal times, we ask that two parent or carer helpers accompany each class in Terms 2 and 3 to supervise the toasting activity. Able-bodied grandparents are also welcome – we love their stories!
COVID-19 related booking modifications (as at 10 November 2020)
Schools are advised to book as early as possible to secure a date. Most schools book a term or two terms ahead. Bookings are taken in order of receipt.
We usually have a two class minimum of 44 students for bookings. This doesn’t usually apply to classes of students with additional needs. During Covid it is unlikely that we can accommodate single class bookings, however there may be ‘stand by’ spots due to cancellations or changed guidelines.
Visit fees fund staffing, collection management and conservation works and are our sole funding source.
Please check the calendar for available dates and email us your preferred dates, grade and numbers of students, arrival time and contact details.

Risk Management Advice (updated Nov 2020)
Schoolhouse Education COVID-19 Safety Plan (updated Oct 2020)
Schools must bring their own hand sanitiser, first aid kit and emergency medications for their students. All museum staff are trained in e-Emergency, anaphylaxis and emergency asthma procedures. An Epi-Pen, first aid kit and Ventolin reliever is located on site. White bread and golden syrup are used for toasting.
Any confirmed booking that is cancelled within 14 school-term days of the visit will incur a $200 cancellation fee.
Cancellations due to unexpected changed risks, requirements and restrictions due to COVID-19 will not incur a cancellation fee. Please provide as much notice as possible as it impacts our staff and costs.
