ANZAC DAY - 25th April

ANZAC Day is a significant commemorative day in Australia and New Zealand's calendar year where ceremonies, marches, etc are held in honour of those soldiers who fought and those who also lost their lives at the Battle of Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I and in addition the day now commemorates those who have served and died in all wars fought by both countries.

Aussie Educator has a wonderful page of various resources on Anzac Day. Please check their site here!
