The Spirit of Anzac Day

When explaining the importance of Anzac Day to our children, I have been told that the simplest explanation is this: “Anzac Day is important because it is a day to remember all of those people who never came back from war or conflict.”  It’s uncomplicated, succinct and truthful.

Today, on the 104th Anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli, we share with you a number of videos that may help you explain the Anzac story to your child.

At Angel’s Paradise Early Education Childcare Centres, we believe in sharing lessons in history with young minds.
One way that we accomplish this is through story telling.
