ANZAC Garden of Remembrance

Glenbrook School creates a Garden of Remembrance for our ANZACs.

Glenbrook School teachers, students, and parents gave up time in their holidays to create a special place to remember our ANZACs and to mark the 100th Centenary of the first Galipoli landing. The Ministry of Education gave schools throughout New Zealand 30 crosses to commemorate the service and sacrifice of those New Zealander’s who fought during 1914-1918.

Creating this garden has given our students ownership and links to the names of the people represented on the crosses. Students and families have been investigating the stories behind the people in our garden. For some of our students, it has given a personal connection to learning about ANZAC and the First World War”.
