ANZAC Day 25th April 2001

As you may have noticed at the front of the school, the flags of Australia and New Zealand have recently been flying at half-mast. The 25th of April is ANZAC day, a very important day for people from New Zealand and Australia. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corp. ANZAC soldiers were fighting on the Gallipoli peninsula in Turkey, during the First World War. The battle began on the 25th of April 1915 and over 200 000 men were either killed or wounded in just nine months.

Year 8 have been studying the events of the 25th April 1915 with Ms Buckley and Mr Jones-Nerzic and extracts from their work will be appearing here in the next few days.
