At the going down of the sun,
And in the morning,
We will remember them.

An ANZAC tribute by Peter Jackson

ANZAC Rap A history lesson

Do some research; this website, from NZ History Online, gives an excellent run down of what ANZAC day is all about and its significance to Australian and New Zealanders


  1. An ANZAC day poem, by Monica:


    Tears traipse down
    my face of mud
    I bite my lip, it
    tastes of defeat

    He said, don’t stop,
    Carry on, get there,
    Stop them

    But why?
    Why the war?

    Nobody asked for this,
    Nobody needed this,
    Did they?

    Guns echo,
    each shot
    answers my question

  2. Monica, thank you for writing such a beautiful poem. You have really captured the feeling that many of the soldiers experienced. You also show that you have made a real connection with what you have learned about the battle at ANZAC Cove. Well done.
