Anzac Day Video

A special ANZAC message from our Year 6 Student Leaders.

Hi everyone, we hope you’ve had a relaxing Easter break. ANZAC Day is tomorrow and as you know and it is a very special day in our community to celebrate those who we have lost and those who serve in the armed forces. This year we will be doing ANZAC Day a bit differently, because of Covid-19. We have some suggestions for the Claremont families, about how we can all recognise ANZAC Day. 

This year you can…

  • Light candles in your driveways at dawn
  • Make ANZAC biscuits
  • Make a card to send to your local RSL
  • Watch the ANZAC service on TV
  • Listen to the Dawn Service while you light your candles
  • Create a red poppy to wear all day
  • Talk to your parents or grandparents about family members who have served in the armed forces
  • Pick and wear Rosemary to wear all day (to help you remember)
  • Do chalk drawings in front of your house to honor the ANZACS
  • Hang up an Australian flag and/or the New Zealand flag, or if you don’t have one you can create a flag.

Please take photos of any of these activities and send these to us (via office@claremont.nsw.edu.au) so we can create a collage of how our school community celebrated ANZAC Day this year. We will share your photos in next week’s newsletter.
