Centenary of Anzac

From 2014 to 2018 Australia commemorates the centenary of World War I. The NSW Department of Education has created a number of learning and teaching resources across key learning areas that can be used to help schools and the community commemorate the centenary of the Anzac.

The following resources have also been developed as part of the commemoration.

The Research and adopt a veteran project guides teachers through the process of researching the historical records of a World War I veteran. This project links schools with their local community.

Students from Miranda Public School, Caringbah Public School and Port Hacking High School collaborated to develop two short films Jack and Tom and Parcel from my sister Kate for the NSW Public Schools film festival – Film by the sea. The films commemorate the centenary of Anzac through parallel stories about friends, Jack and Tom, who enlist in World War I and their sister Kate.
