Schools

Our schools program forms a significant component of WAM. It is offered to schools within 150km of Albury and provides opportunities for students to be inspired by and learn from some of Australia's best authors and illustrators.

The WAM Schools Program is provided free of charge to all registered schools and home-schoolers within a 150km radius of Albury. This year the schools program is all online.

Authors James Phelan, Nova Weetman and George Ivanoff have created online content for primary grades 3 – 6 and secondary grades 7 – 12. It is available to download from now until the end of November 2020. Materials include video presentations, class plans and writing exercises.

If you are looking for K-2 materials, check the Library and Museum at Home pages for resources and activities for this age group. In particular we recommend the Story Box Library. We'll be back next year with live presentations for all grades, K-12.

Register Now

Why are we asking you to register?

The authors earn an income doing school presentations. They are generously making this material available to us for an extended period. We are protecting their livelihood by limiting access only to schools in our catchment area. By all means, make sure your colleagues know about this opportunity, but please, ask them to register rather than forwarding the link yourself. 

We also want to  seek feedback for future programming from everyone who has used these resources so we can gauge the usefulness of the online approach and the materials provided.

Still have questions?

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact Narelle Lethlean in the LibraryMuseum Learning & Outreach team on 02 6023 8346 or email nlethlean@alburycity.nsw.gov.au.
