Broomfield school ensured its students still learnt the importance of Anzac Day despite pupils learning from home.
es with a selection of reading, writing, listening, history and creative activity choices to explore during the lead up week to the day of remembrance.
Staff felt this was a great way to acknowledge the importance of Anzac Day, and although they could not be together as a school, they could still learn together as a school.
Many students did an array of work bringing the local area to life with colour remembrance tributes on their fences, gates, mailboxes and the school’s gates.
It also ran a poetry competition on the Anzacs who fought for freedom, with many never returning home.
The winning entries were:
Year 0-2, Ziggy Gould with Great Grandfather.
Year 3-4, Rose Dillon, A Parade at Dawn.
Year 5 -6, Isla Gibson, Like a Soldier.
Year 7 – 8, Austin Knight, The Night Watch.
Open, Lachlan Herbert.
Adult, Simon Walker, Thoughts on Anzac.
