We decided against going to the city for the massive service for the 100yr anniversary of the Gallipoli landing.
Visiting the city would have allowed us to see Federation Square like this… covered in thousands of knitted poppies.
The kids did participate in making a poppy wall at school…
And the principal bought every student a commemorative coin.
These days the kids are so much more aware of the significance of Anzac Day, and if my Facebook feed is any indication, national pride is high!
Why oh why, then, would the powers-that-be decide a football game is more worthy of a public holiday???
