VHEC School Program


Book A Workshop For Your Classroom

The VHEC is engaged in a major Renewal Project that will significantly improve visitor experience and access to our collections.

The exhibition space is closed from July through December 2017 to facilitate renovations. While there is no exhibition and no class visits to the Centre between September and December 2017, the school program continues during the renovation period in the form of classroom-based workshops facilitated by VHEC docents.


PROGRAM DETAILS:

  • Rather than teachers and students visiting the VHEC, a docent comes to the classroom to facilitate a workshop on the Holocaust.

  • The classroom workshop consists of a short film that focuses on decision making and rescue during the Holocaust followed by an interactive presentation by a VHEC docent. Sessions run 60 minutes for Secondary School classes and 45 minutes for Elementary School classes.

  • Recommended for grades 6-12.

  • Recommended class size is 30 students.

  • Classroom workshops are offered in both the mornings and in the afternoons according to arrangements made between the teacher and the Centre.

  • Cost: $65 per class of 30 students.

  • Due to the high volume of requests for workshops, we recommend that you book at least two weeks in advance.

  • Three days cancellation notice is required.
