ANZAC Day / WW1

Postby Govangirl » Fri Apr 26, 2013 10:36 pm

I was very impressed with the commemoration of ANZAC Day in Australia and NZ particularly as I have a relative who died at Gallipoli at the age of 19. What struck me most though was how many people - especially young people - thronged the streets. Many of these young folk really had a great knowledge of the contribution and sacrifice of their fellow countrymen and it doesn't seem to be the same here. Is it because History is not a priority on our curriculum? Why is it? And does anyone know if there is going to be any big WW1 centenary events next year?
