Text Size a a a Print Print this page

The spirit of the ANZACs is not confined to the battlefield.  It lives on in schools, on sports fields, and all over Australia.

It is important that our children have the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the significance of ANZAC Day. School ceremonies play a vital role in establishing the link between the present generation and the past.

There are a number of resources available to help schools prepare for ANZAC Day ceremonies:

Schools are also welcome to apply for an ANZAC Day Schools' Award through the Department of Veterans' Affairs.

The Premier’s ANZAC Student Tour competition is open annually to students in years 8-11.  The tour is an opportunity for outstanding young ambassadors to represent Western Australia at selected ANZAC events overseas.

For further information on the Tour, visit The Premier's ANZAC Student Tour website.
