C&G’s Guide to Anzac Day 2020

Saturday the 25th of April marks Anzac Day, where all Australians and New Zealanders unite in honouring the brave men and women who fought for our country. While we all have our own traditions for participating in this important day, this year will be a little different. In this latest C&G blog we unpack how you can participate in #AnzacAtHome with your loved ones.

Dawn Service

This year the Anzac Day Dawn Service will be hosted by the Australian War Memorial (AWM) and broadcasted live across Australia. You will be able to view it from 5:00am on ABC TV, iView, as well as the AWM website, Facebook and Youtube. If you’d like to learn more about the service and watch last year’s ceremony, follow this link.

#AnzacAtHome

This year has been nothing but unusual! However, social media continues to keep us connected and social throughout this period of self-isolation. #AnzacAtHome is how we will be keeping the Anzac spirit alive while we’re at home. You are encouraged to share your photos and videos with the world using the hashtag, especially if you’re doing something extra special to commemorate our veterans and service members. AWM just have some social media rules that they kindly ask everyone to follow.

Different Ways to Remember

While we cannot attend a physical ceremony this year, we can still commemorate the day in unique ways. From making paper poppies to Anzac Day biscuits, this page has plenty of ideas for teaching children about the significance of Anzac Day. Adults can also enjoy these activities as well as Anzac themed games and watching highlights from classic Anzac Day sporting matches. Alternatively, you can also show support through donating to the various charity organisations preserving the memory of the troops and their families.
