There are many valuable resources available to students and teachers interested in researching, studying and undertaking project work in the lead up to, and during, the Anzac Centenary (2014 – 2018).

There is no better way to understand and appreciate the service and sacrifice of Australian service men and women than to explore family or community connections, read about Victoria’s courageous contributions to the war effort, or pay a visit to the Shrine of Remembrance.

Here are some of the resources available for teachers and students.

The Shrine of Remembrance

Through the Education Program, students are encouraged to reflect on the personal qualities exemplified by the spirit of Anzac and remember the service and sacrifice of Australian service men and women in all conflicts and peace keeping operations.
