We Remember

12 Nov

Last year my husband and I took ourselves on a road trip from Toowoomba to Canberra – stopping at a few places along the way.

While we were in Canberra we visited the Australian War memorial.

We were amazed with the place.  We didn’t expect the collection to be so big and detailed.

We did one of the daily free tours and were truly amazed by the artefacts that were on display.

Yesterday for Rememberance Day I tried to get my class to realise how lucky we are to live in Australia and how respectful we need to be to our serviceman.

We made poppies to wear.

And had a prayer circle that incorporated our minutes silence and the playing of the last post.

    I think it’s fabulous that you taught your students about rememberance day I grew up an RSL Youth Club kid so we always knew the meaning of rememberance day and attended ceremonies for that as well as ANZAC Day- the poppies look great by the way xx

    that’s beautiful. Nicklas’ class made poppies too. I talked to him a bit about what it was for when he came home.

    I won’t ever forget going to the Australian war memorial as a child. It’s something every Australian should do.
    Lest we forget
