Let their names not be forgotten

Experiences of an Anzac encourages students to co-construct an understanding around the life of the Anzac soldier.

Introducing a new generation to the experience of war and why we must 'let their names be not forgotten', the session provides:

  • hands-on interactions with World War I collections
  • an overview of the war 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.

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