The courage, determination, endurance and mate-ship demonstrated by the soldiers helped to form Australia’s identity. The ANZAC legend and the values associated with it continue to shape the way many Australians view themselves and have become an important part of our national identity.
Southwell students plan and manage an ANZAC day ceremony as a whole school event. In this event, students reflect on their identity, the Australian identity and how past events and people helped shape us. Students participate in an event where Australians practice their values of the ANZAC legend and why these values and characteristics are still important today.
