In Australia we celebrate a thing called A.N.Z.A.C Day. On this day we remember the brave soldiers who have represented Australia and New Zealand at war. At our school we have a memorial at the front of the yard; this is where we have our A.N.Z.A.C Day ceremony. This year we sang a song called “Lest We Forget,” which comes from a famous poem ‘Ode of Recession.’ We have a ceremony to remember them, we also have one minute silent to remember what they did. There is a special flower that grew over the graves of soldiers fighting in France. It is bright red and is called a ‘poppy.’ Our class read the poem ‘In Flanders Fields’ and talked about the great sacrifice our soldiers made for our country.
What message do you have for soldiers who have represented our country?
