ANZAC Day 2023

Learning about ANZAC Day helps young children to understand the life and times of Australia and its people.

Today we welcomed back Greg Laird, retired president of the Port Macquarie RSL Sub Branch and Vietnam veteran, for the 5th year. Greg answered the children’s questions, told us about each of his medals, and engaged in discussions to ensure that stories about Australia’s heroes and history are passed down to the younger generation at a time when they are actively interested and engaged.

Through discussing the history behind ANZAC Day, young children come to better understand the value and need for peace.
