CANBERRA
 PACER

The Parliament and Civics Education Rebate (PACER) provides a subsidy for schools travelling more than 150 kilometres to visit the national capital as part of a civics and citizenship education excursion. Schools must visit Parliament House, Old Parliament House and the Australian War Memorial and where possible participate in an education programme at these institutions. The rebate is available for year 4 to year 12 students and is paid on a per student basis at rates varying according to the distance traveled as shown below. Funds should be used to reduce the costs for individual students If you are planning a school excursion to Canberra and wish to apply for the rebate please contact the PACER program on Ph: 1300 368 248.  

Note* Please read the guidelines carefully, as conditions apply for the payment of the rebate including obtaining approval before you travel.
