The Civics in the City Grant seeks to enable students from regional schools to visit Parliament House and be taken on a tailored tour designed to meet the age, needs and interests of the student group attending. The tour includes the opportunity for students to spend time in the upper and lower houses of Parliament and to conduct a parliamentary style debate (on non-sitting days) with students encouraged to present on issues that matter to them most. Short talks by SA Parliament staff who have expert knowledge of parliamentary processes also feature.
– Any school situated outside direct public transport access to South Australia’s Parliament House.
– Applicant schools must not have visited Parliament House, either in Canberra or Adelaide, in the last 12 months.
– Applications will be assessed on the basis of need and the value of their students visiting Parliament House as part of their civics learning
The grant will provide schools with funding to help with their transport and other costs to enable their students to visit Parliament House. The level of subsidy provided will depend on the costs involved.
Applications are now open and close on March 8 2024
