Local Schools Prepare for Remembrance Day with Mail-out
Every year, the Department of Veterans’ Affairs produce an educational pack that is used in schools right throughout the country to promote the observance of Remembrance Day.
“Educating young people on the origins and significance of Remembrance Day, including observing a minute’s silence at 11 am, is vitally important,” Senator Payne said.
“The 2018 Remembrance Day posters feature four portraits of men and women who served during the Gallipoli campaign. The portraits were created by combining one hundred portraits of men and women who have served in the three services of the ADF over the past century.
“I encourage all schools, students and communities to get involved in Remembrance Day commemorations, marking the centenary of the First World War Armistice, to remember all those who have suffered or died for our nation in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations over a Century of Service.”
Schools will begin to receive the educational kit in September, with resources available to download on The Anzac Portal.
