Applications open for the Victorian Premier’s Spirit of Democracy study tour


Applications for the 2022-2023 Victorian Premier’s Spirit of Democracy (PSoD) study tour are now open to secondary school students currently in Years 9 to 11.

PSoD gives 22 students from government, Catholic and independent schools the opportunity to take part in a week-long study tour of Melbourne and Canberra during the Term 1 school holidays (April 13 – 19, 2023)

During the tour, students will develop a greater understanding of civics and citizenship, including the role ancient Greece has played on the origins of Australian democracy.

Students will also gain the skills and understanding needed to participate in Australia’s democratic structures and institutions so they can use their voice to lead positive change in their communities and shape the future.

Applications for the PSOD close at 11:59pm on Sunday, October 16, 2022. Successful applicants will be notified in November 2022.
