Lest We Forget

Each year on April 25th we commemorate ANZAC Day. This year is significant as it is the 100th anniversary of the ANZAC landings at Gallipoli.

What does ANZAC Day mean to you and your family? What did you and your family do this year to commemorate ANZAC Day? Did you attend the dawn service at the Shrine of Remembrance or take part in a local march? What have you learnt about ANZAC Day and its importance in Australia? Write your response as a comment.
