Anzac Day Commemorations

For the first week back of Term 2, we were learning all about Anzac Day and what it means. We learnt all about Anzac cove, the allies, the men and women who fought for our freedom and all the different ways that New Zealand commemorates this special day.

On Friday the 24th, we had Anzac Day services at school. The whole school listened to speeches by the prefects, sung songs with the choir and had a minutes silence to remember those we lost. Room 9 played a special part in the service. We showed our artwork of the poppies, the first flowers that grew in the fields where the soldiers fought.

We also learnt the Ode of Remembrance and performed this at the service. It was a very special event. Check out the video..........
