This week we have been learning about ANZAC day because it is 100 years since the first ANZACs landed at Gallipoli.
We remember the ANZACs because they were brave and they fought in the First World War to keep us safe. We appreciate what they did and thank many of them for sacrificing their lives.
Today Zoe brought in a special book titled “Galipoli” about two mates who went to Gallipoli. Their names were Bluey and Dusty and they “joined up” to begin an adventure. They met Simpson and his donkey (Duffy) and both spent time in hospital on an island called Lemnos. It was a nice book to read because it told the story of Gallipoli from their point of view.
Last year I visited the War Memorial in Canberra and took this photo of the wall which has the names of Australians who have lost their lives in wars.
We will never forget them.
What else do you know about ANZAC day?
Do you know of any family members (eg great grandfathers) who have been in wars?
Did you do anything to celebrate ANZAC day with your family on Saturday?
