Why is it important to remember ANZAC Day?

I think that it is important to remember ANZAC Day because soldiers fought for Australia and New Zealand’s freedom and lots of people died for us so we should pay our respects to those soldiers. I also feel sorry for the families that have a relative who died at war. Those people who went to war knew that they could die but sacrificed their lives and went away leaving their family for a period of time. We should remember how scared the soldiers’ family were as war went for a long time. Lots of people are very sad because war isn’t a good thing. I think it is important because if we didn’t have those brave soldiers, then we wouldn’t be a free country. By Theresa

It is important to remember ANZAC Day because all of the soldiers served our country and put their lives at risk so we could have a free country. All the people that came back from war want to celebrate what they did for Australia and what their mates have done even if they didn’t return. By Nikolas

I think it is important to remember ANZAC Day because the people that fought for us protected us and are still protecting us. So we should remember them. They knew they could die but they still fought. They left their family knowing that they might not return. They knew the dangers and injuries they might get. Lest We Forget. By Paige

ANZAC Day is a time to remember what happened to the people that fought for us in World War 1 and World War 2. I think the ANZAC day tradition is a great time to celebrate all the people that made our world a better place. By Taylah

It is important to remember ANZAC Day because all the soldiers fought for our country. It reminds us of all the soldiers who died for us. The Soldiers were very brave to go to war. By Evan

It is important to remember ANZAC Day because the people who went to war went for us and for our freedom. There is a Dawn Service and then a parade. People from the war go to have a drink. Some relatives go with them. They died for us while serving our country. By Gabriella

It is important to remember ANZAC Day for all the brave, young but sad, people who fought for our freedom. OUR freedom. They risked their lives in World War 1. Over 60,000 Aussies and New Zealanders died, for us. That is why we have ANZAC Day. We also celebrate ANZAC Day for all the survivors. To remember all the fallen soldiers we have a minute silence and play the last post. We also have dawn services. By Sophie M

Please watch the song ‘The Last ANZAC’

    Hi 3/4D,
    Anzac day is a day to remember all of those brave men who fought in war especially the ones that
    died. On Anzac day people who fought in war and are still alive march in the Anzac day march
    as well as relatives of soldiers.

    Hi 3/4 D
    Today it was beautiful sunshine for Anzac Day events. It was the coldest morning this year, but about 70,000 people went into the Shrine for the Dawn Service.
    I watched the Anzac Parade on tv with my Dad. We saw lots of soldiers in their uniforms, and marching bands. Nurses went to war too.
    We should always remember the people who went to war for us and freedom.
    It is good that children march for their relatives who can’t march or died.
    Next year my Mum said she is going to the Dawn Service because it is the 100th Anniversary.

    Hi 3/4D

    On ANZAC day me and my dad went to the dawn service in the city. It was a very early in the morning when I woke up to go, it was 4.00 am. It was Very cold. It had a few songs and readings. It was very respectful.

    On the morning of 25 April 1915, the Anzacs set out to capture the Gallipoli peninsula in order to open the Dardanelles to the allied navies. The objective was to capture Constantinople (now Istanbul in Turkey), the capital of the Ottoman Empire, and an ally of Germany.

    The Anzacs landed on Gallipoli and met fierce resistance from the Ottoman Turkish defenders. Their plan to knock Turkey out of the war quickly became a stalemate, and the campaign dragged on for eight months.

    At the end of 1915, the allied forces were evacuated. Both sides suffered heavy casualties and endured great hardships. Over 8,000 Australian soldiers were killed. News of the landing on Gallipoli and the events that followed had a profound impact on Australians at home. The 25th of April soon became the day on which Australians remember the sacrifice of those who had died in the war.

    The Anzacs were courageous and although the Gallipoli campaign failed in its military objectives, the Australian and New Zealand actions during the campaign left us all a powerful legacy.
