ANZAC Assembly and Dawn Service

26/04/2016

​On Friday 22 April at 12pm we held our annual ANZAC Day assembly.  Our School Captains represented our school at the Redlands RSL Dawn Service on Monday at 5:30am.  Acknowledging and remembering the bravery and sacrifice of the many Australians who have served in wartime, (conflicts as well as peacekeeping missions) is an important date on Australian calendars.  What you may not know however, is that the significance of the ANZAC tradition is considered ‘essential learning’ for all students in the Australian Curriculum- History, with a major teaching emphasis in Years 3 and 9.  In Year 3, the students learn about and discuss the significance of ANZAC Day, whilst in Year 9 students investigate World War 1 in depth. Australian Curriculum – History is all about the importance of students understanding their own and others’ histories, appreciating our traditions and how they have changed.
