History Month

How will your school be celebrating History Month? Put it on the school calendar now!

Remind your students and your colleagues of how engaging history is. History Month (October 2021) is an opportunity to:

  • celebrate all that is inspiring and exciting about studying History
  • showcase the skills and enthusiasm of History students
  • encourage more students to pursue History into the senior years
  • engage the whole school community in conversations about history
  • give scope to the talent and creativity of your school’s History teachers

Kick start your History Week by getting some of these great ideas into your school calendar. We’ve collected all kinds of ideas to help raise the profile of History at your school. Download the ideas flyer here.


Let us know about how your school is celebrating History Month. Please send us a couple of photos to membership@htav.asn.au, with captions telling us the who, what and where, and we will showcase some of the great ideas in our next Member Bulletin and on the HTAV website. Don’t forget to obtain permissions from any students who are identifiable in the photos.

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians and Traditional Custodians of the lands where we live, learn and work. The HTAV Office is located on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. These lands were never ceded. We pay our respect to their ancestors and Elders, past and present.

Please note: Indigenous Australians are advised that the HTAV website may include images or names of people now deceased.
