Premier’s Anzac Memorial Scholarship (PAMS)
The Premier’s Anzac Memorial Scholarship enables high school students to experience international cultures and further their education in some of Australia’s most important historical events. The teachers that accompany them will play a vital role in supporting and encouraging them in their learning.
The 2018 PAMS tour
The Premier’s Anzac Memorial Scholarship will fund a study tour for 20 young people to travel to the Western Front, in France and Belgium, during late June and early July 2018. Students will visit the battlefields where the Anzacs fought, discover their experiences and commemorate their service.
In July 2017, schools across NSW were invited to submit an expression of interest to participate in the 2018 Premier’s Anzac Memorial Scholarship selection process.
The ballot was held on 23 August 2017 and the following schools were drawn:
Bega High School
Condobolin High School
De La Salle College Revesby Heights
Glenwood High School
Lithgow High School
Northern Beaches Secondary College- Mackellar Girls Campus
Oberon High School
Pennant Hills High School

Plumpton High School
Rooty Hill High School
St Edward's College Gosford
St Joseph's Catholic High School Albion Park
St Mary's Catholic College Casino
Stella Maris College
Sydney Secondary College Balmain Campus
Vincentia High School
Each of these 20 schools has run a local selection process to choose a student to attend the tour and these scholars will be announced soon.
Look to 2018 PAMS eligibiliy criteria and information for details on the selection process.
In September, History teachers from across NSW were invited to apply to accompany the scholars on the 2018 PAMS tour and applications closed on 27 October 2017.
The teachers chosen to accompanying the tour will provide supervision for the students during the 13-day trip, support their learning experience and enrich their own teaching practices on return so classrooms across NSW can reap the benefits of the tour.
