Did you know that ANZAC Day is on the 25th of April? Do you know why we take time to comemmorate the ANZACs on this day? We do!
We have been lucky enough to have a veteran from the Berwick RSL come out to chat with all the Grade 4 students. He brought along memorabelia for us to see and touch. A real jacket, made from heavy warm green wool. One that he war in the Vietnam War. He bought in his slouch hat and was generous enough to let us try it on! He showed us the medals he earnt in his time in the army.
He shared stories and we learnt information about the importance of commemorating our soldiers.
Then on the 24th we made our very own poppies for an ANZAC wreath to show our care and recognition for the sacrifices our war veterans made.

Remember tomorrow to take a minute of silence to remember, to hear the bugle and to listen to the ode and be thankful for the peaceful country we live in today. From a solomn and grateful 4R.
