We understand that sometimes, even though an exhibition visit is free, transport costs can inhibit schools visiting the Gallery. With the support of BHP, AGSA Education are pleased to announce transport subsidies for school visits to Tarnanthi in term 4, 2021. This subsidy is available for Department for Education Category 1-4 schools that are located 30km outside of the CBD.
Applications due by 5pm Friday 1 October 2021
Successful applicants will be notified via email by Friday 8 October 2021

Department for Education Category 1-4 schools that are located 30km outside of the CBD.
If your school is located 30km outside of CBD, but is not category 1-4, we encourage you to apply, however priority will be given to those schools that meet both criteria.
Each school site can apply for up to $1000 as a contribution towards the cost of return transport to the Art Gallery of South Australia.
Once your application is approved by AGSA, our Education Support Officer will liaise with you as to an appropriate time to schedule your school excursion. It will be the responsibility of the school to make the transport booking. Once this has been confirmed your school finance department will need to invoice AGSA Education for the agreed subsidy amount.
