Home Schoolers are very welcome at Sovereign Hill
Sovereign Hill Education provides education sessions, professional development programs and on-line resources to support learning about the significance of the gold rushes in Victoria’s and Australia’s development. Every aspect of our national life was changed by the wealth and opportunity created by gold. All our sessions and resources are aligned with VELS outcomes. Our Education Officers and bookings staff will help you get the most from your visit to Sovereign Hill’s Outdoor Museum, the Gold Museum and our night-time sound and light show telling the story of the Eureka Uprising, Blood on the Southern Cross. Ask for details about becoming a Sovereign Hill Teacher Member for regular updates on curriculum developments—it’s free.
On provision of a copy by email, fax or post of the Victorian Registration and Qualifications Authority notification for each student, homeschooling groups are admitted at the same rates as school groups. Accompanying adults in the ratio of 1:10 students are free and additional accompanying adults are admitted at the concession rate. Booking ahead is preferred and essential if a session with one of our Education Officers is required.
For further information please feel free to contact us.
