Anzac Day RSL
On the 23rd of February 2018, our teacher, Ms. Lindon, received a letter from Semaphore Port Adelaide RSL. They were asking Room 2 to decorate a rectangular calico cloth, which showed 100 years of Anzac involvement.
The Semaphore Port Adelaide RSL holds the largest Anzac day service every year in SA. This year, it is inviting all schools in Adelaide to participate in a special Remembrance activity to respect the final year of the Centenary of Anzac 2014-2018, marking 100 years since their involvement in the First World War. The students who decorated the calico cloth banner were Eshal Khan and Eila De Fontgalland.
The RSL was founded in 1916 to provide support to Australia’s veterans and their families. The RSL says, “One of the most important legacies is to improve the community understanding of their war time history, especially younger Australians.” We think this is very important as many people were committed to saving their country. People need to have a better understanding about the First World War.
On Wednesday, April 25th (in the holidays), students of Unley Primary School are invited to join us at the Unley Soldiers Memorial Garden to commemorate Anzac Day. We will meet at 5:45am, in school uniform if possible.
