Rabaul and Montevideo Maru Memorial



This section contains material relating to education and awareness raising on issues relevant to Papua New Guinea and the Montevideo Maru.

Project 150: One of the Society's current objectives is 'Education' and we have recently developed a history supplement to complement the current Year 10 Australian History curriculum. The text of this supplement can be found here.

"Project 150" is about giving secondary students the opportunity to learn an Australian perspective of the Pacific in WW2. We are currently looking for 150 teachers to take part in the trial, which will include lesson plans, background notes, worksheets, resources and a copy of the DVD Some Came Home. The flyer here outlines the trial: please share with any history teachers that you think may be interested in the trial. To register you can fill out the form which is here.

We have a 15 minute promo for Some Came Home, which you can view online or download as a ZIP file.

The PNGAA can also provide assistance, as outlined in the President's letter here.

Our National Myopia: The first Australian town to be attacked in WW2 was not Darwin: it was Rabaul. Read all about this neglected episode in Australia's history here.
