ANZAC Day is held on the 25 April every year. Here are some of the ways you can be involved:
It’s traditional to make ANZAC biscuits. These were hard biscuits that were eaten by soldiers instead of bread. They were baked used rolled oats, golden syrup or treacle and sent to the soldiers. The biscuits were often made by the mothers, wives and girlfriends of the soldiers. Here’s a video and the official ANZAC biscuit recipe.
ANZAC Day Ode
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, not the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
