Commemorating ANZAC these April school holidays


Mark the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli beach landings by ANZAC forces in 1915 at your local libraries and community centres during the April school holidays.  Your kids can discover New Zealand’s ANZAC heritage through activities that let you experience life as a solider, or what it was like on the homefront during war time. They’ll explore fascinating stories of World War  One.
