Video Conferencing

The Courage to Care program is also available via remote access through the NSW Government Department of Education Distance and Rural Technologies (DART) Unit. Schools that are unable to attend an exhibition in person are encouraged to book into our video conferencing program.

The video conferencing module runs for 60 minutes and includes:

  • A brief introduction to the program and a historical background on World War Two and the Holocaust
  • A story-telling session with a ‘Living Historian’, a Holocaust survivor who will share their own personal story of rescue and the support provided by others that enabled them to survive
  • A facilitated workshop where students are encouraged to enquire, discuss and critically reflect on their own experiences and how what they have heard relates to their everyday lives.

Schools participating in a video conferencing session will be sent ready-to-use preparatory material including lesson plans and activities by email and post to help students better prepare for the session and enrich their experience of the event. Additional material is also available under Teacher’s Material.
