ANZAC DAY

The Anzac day website can be found at http://www.anzacday.gov.au/.

The Premier’s ANZAC Memorial Scholarship program has the purpose of ensuring that the Gallipoli story remains a living part of Australian history. Twelve scholarships have been awarded for 2009 to students from throughout NSW enrolled in government and non-government schools. The Premier and Mr Don Rowe, the President of the NSW Branch of the Returned and Services League, will accompany these students and two supervising teachers to Gallipoli to participate in ANZAC Day commemoration activities. The tour will be of approximately one week’s duration and will take place in the second week of the 2009 autumn school vacation –
