In Australia, on 25 April each year, we commemorate our country’s service in the First World War . At this time we also acknowledge all who have died in defending our country since then and those currently deployed.
This year is the 100 year anniversary and the Gallipoli campaign is remembered in particular as the place where our ‘true nationhood’ was born. The troops from Australia and New Zealand fought this battle for the British and are now known as the ANZACS (Australia New Zealand Army Corps)
Our display in the IRC was useful this week for classes to have reading time in the library and reminded students of the wonderful collection of relevant print materials we have on this topic for K-12.
Today a service was also held in the Sports Centre for the whole school.
