The Australian War Memorial aims to assist student learners to remember, interpret and understand the Australian experience of war and it’s enduring impact on Australian society.
Our education programs draw on the many personal stories and fascinating displays found in our galleries. These creative enquiry-based programs enable students to adopt a hands-on approach to learning.
How well does the Anzac legend tell the story of individual Australian soldiers during World War One?
The 2014 Simpson Prize Question requires students to respond to the question using both the 2014 Simpson Prize Australian War Memorial Source Selection and their own research. It is expected that students will make effective use of a minimum of 3 of the sources. It is also expected that up to half of their response will make use of information drawn from their own knowledge and research.
