Anzac Day at Broomfield

SHARE

By Robyn Bristow

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.
