Explore the consequences of World War I

The Anzac package combines an educator-led session and a drama to explore some of the impacts and consequences of World War I.

The educator session provides:

  • hands-on interactions with World War I collections
  • an overview of World War I and New Zealand's role in it
  • an opportunity for students to ask questions, think critically and co-construct ideas about the experiences of New Zealand soldiers at Gallipoli
  • opportunities to make comparisons to life today
  • discussion around the role of memorials, past and present.

The drama provides:

  • face-to-face encounters with characters based on individual New Zealanders
  • an interactive learning opportunity which explores drama elements and conventions.

The Anzac package exposes a new generation to the experience of war, and why we must 'let their names be not forgotten'.

This programme is assisted by LEOTC and funded by the Ministry of Education.
