We Say/You Say: Anzac Day

Thomas Campbell Reporter from Hamilton Press

Hi Hamilton,

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 in the Hamilton Press.

We have hung 2 of our 3 mosaic tiles in our entrance way to Uplands Kindergarten. We will treasure these, as our talented teacher Maggie, created them for us. Come and see them when you visit us at Uplands.
Faith
Our Christian identity is woven into our daily routines and provides a model of how we interact with our families and with each other at Uplands.

Learning

Uplands children are inspired by their own learning power, having fun while developing skills in co-operative problem solving, independent reasoning and reflection.
