Event Info

Assistance to local Primary and Secondary schools

 

The Upwey/Belgrave RSL provides resources for local schools in two ways.  Our veterans can visit schools for presentations (often in conjunction with ANZAC and Remembrance Days) and these include descriptions of our veteran’s own service experience and may include details of major conflicts, peace keeping  and humanitarian operations involving the ADF. 

 

The second way is to have school groups to visit our “Running Rabbits” Military Museum and Library as we can obviously present a much larger “Show and Tell” experience.  This will be tailored to what part (year) of the curriculum the students are studying.

 

We encourage representatives from schools to contact us so that we can formulate a presentation that is most suitable for the students as part of the current school curriculum.  What we try to achieve is not to explain the various conflicts, as we see this as the role of the teacher, but rather to show students how the troops (etc) lived and what their experiences would have been depending where they were.

 

A copy of our guide to schools can be obtained by request.  Contact MuseumThis email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.,au" target="_blank">@upweybelgraversl.org,au

 

Our comprehensive Library is available during office hours and features a wide range of non-fiction resources relating to military history, historical newspapers, photographs and a PC data base of all our memorabilia, photographs and services members personal experiences, medals etc.

 

There are also many internet resources that schools may find useful and we would suggest the following web sites 

 

ANZAC Day

Australian War Memorial 

Shrine of Rememberance 

RSL Victoria 
 

 

If schools want students to do research on family members who served then we would suggest these sites

 

 The AIF Project  AWM (nominal rolls)
National Archives of Australia

 

 

If Students or schools want to show support to our troops serving far from home by sending a postcard, email or parcel we suggest they contact Ocean, Sky and Khaki at http://oceanskykhaki.bolgspot.com.   This service is often free, but see the web site for more information.
