We Say/You Say: Anzac Day

The Team from Community News

Hi Auckland,

How are you commemorating Anzac Day? What stories have been passed down through your whānau?

April 25 marks the 106-year anniversary of the Gallipoli landings, one of the most costly campaigns for the Allied Forces during World War I.

Anzac dawn and commemorative services up and down the country are scheduled to get underway after widespread cancellations last year, due to the nation being under Alert Level 4 restrictions.

The NZDF have advised of a reduced presence of military personnel at Anzac services due to deployment at MIQ facilities.

You can check out where the Anzac day services are on this interactive map on the RSA website.

Feel free and share your stories below and don't forget to type NFP if you don't want your comments used your local community paper.

Learning about ANZAC Day

Theresa Vause from English Language Partners Auckland South

Learners from our Papatoetoe ESOL literacy classes learnt about ANZAC Day. They made some poppies and visited the Papatoetoe Historical Society Museum where they learnt how medals were crafted and about the RSA.
Thank you to the Papatoetoe Historical Society Museum for having us.
